ISI Report

Birkenhead School is inspected regularly by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) to ensure that the highest standards of education are being achieved and maintained.

The most recent inspection reports can be accessed via the links below:
  The Regulatory Compliance Inspection Report (November 2017) includes the Early Years Foundation Stage Inspection completed in November 2017. 

Highlights of the 2017 report are:
  • The overall effectiveness of the Early Years provision is outstanding
  • Exciting learning opportunities and dedicated and nurturing staff ensure that children make good, and at times rapid, progress relative to their starting points and are carefully prepared for transition into the next stage of learning.
  • Children are exceptionally happy and secure in the setting benefitting from the strong bonds they form with their key workers and other staff in the room.
  • The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is outstanding.
  • Staff provide high quality learning experiences for the children to meet their next steps.
  • Where children are identified as exceeding expectations, staff utilise other resources in the setting to provide challenge and promote further learning. Skilled staff seize opportunities to extend children’s thinking through child initiated and focused group activities.
  • Children’s well-being is a strength of the setting. Staff form warm, secure relationships with the children in their care and as a result, young children are happy and show high levels of confidence and enjoyment.
