Strand’s latest Ofsted inspection took place in November 2021. It was a section 8 inspection, the purpose of which is to confirm that the school remains good. There are no new graded judgements on a section 8 inspection, but as you can see from the report, Her Majesty’s Inspector was left in no doubt that Strand continues to be a good school.
We are pleased that Ofsted recognised that Strandites “ are proud to be upstanders, standing up for each other and what is right” who “behave well and work hard”. Great quotes that perfectly encapsulate our Spirited, Scholarly and Supportive Strandites!

As part of the subject survey inspection programme Strand also had a Music Inspection. Our music provision was judged to be good in all areas. The report said many great things about our Music provision including recognising the very high standards our children achieve.
By the end of Year 6, pupils’ attainment is above average and in some aspects, for example, in performing on African drums, it is outstanding. Pupils sing accurately and confidently with clear diction and well-projected tone quality, both in unison and in parts. All pupils in Year 3 Take part in whole -class instrumental lessons, which complement their learning in other music lessons."
