All schools are inspected regularly by Ofsted to ensure a good standard of education is being maintained. Langford Budville School was inspected in March 2018 under an Ofsted framework which has become even more stringent since our previous ‘Good’ inspection in January 2014. The school has since experienced a number of significant staffing changes, and taken a new direction in the way the curriculum is delivered.
We were delighted that following our recent inspection the 2018 Ofsted report states that ‘This school continues to be good.’
