On the 24th January 2018, Ofsted inspected our school. 

We are proud to report that OFSTED has described Charlesworth School as a “good school” where “pupils respond well to the caring, nurturing atmosphere and ethos of the school.”


They recognised that “teachers make learning fun and pupils respond to this well. Teaching is consistently good with high expectations and outstanding aspects in the Early Years Foundation Stage where children settle quickly.”


It was commented that ”pupils are proud of their achievements, work together well and listen carefully to each other. Relationships are very positive and pupils are respectful whilst being friendly and open, eager to engage in conversation.”


They noted that the school is “ambitious to improve even further.”

Church School Report (SIAMS)

Church schools are subject to an additional statutory inspection as part of the OFSTED framework (Section 48 of the Education Act).

Our latest school inspection report dates from February 2017.  Charlesworth School was praised for being a ‘good church school, where the school ethos and treatment of every child as an individual and the quality of relationships demonstrate that the life and work of the school is firmly rooted in Christian values.’

These values are evident in the outstanding relationships fostered within the school community and promote the children’s personal development. Our children were praised for being well behaved, articulate and caring.
