Estyn carries out inspections of maintained nursery schools and primary schools under Section 10 of the School Inspections Act 1996. The Act requires the Chief Inspector to maintain a register of independent inspectors (registered, team and lay inspectors) whom she considers appropriate to conduct these inspections. Under the Act, the Chief Inspector may also direct Her Majesty’s Inspectors of Education and Training (HMI) to inspect schools, where necessary. All schools are inspected at least once every six years. These inspections cover all aspects of a school’s provision. The function of an inspection under Section 10 of the Act is to report on:
- the educational standards achieved in the school;
- the quality of education provided by the school;
- the quality of leadership in and management of the school, including whether the financial resources made available to the school are managed efficiently; and
- the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils at the school.
The last inspection of St. Julian’s Primary School was on: 25th January 2011.
