Schools are inspected to assess their performance on the key areas of effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment, personal development, behaviour and welfare and outcomes for pupils.

Each criteria is then graded outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate, with the school then given an overall judgement.

There are currently 90 per cent of schools in South Tyneside classified as good or better with 30.6 per cent judged as being outstanding. Five current schools were judged at their last inspections as requiring improvement. There are no schools currently classified as inadequate.

The majority of inspections were postponed during the Covid pandemic.

While a select few schools were inspected during the summer term, the inspection process is due to resume in full this month.

Below is a list of judgements for South Tyneside schools based on their most recent full inspections. A number of schools may have had interim smaller inspections since then to ensure the school is still operating at the same level.

A significant number of the region’s schools have closed and reopened as academies and have not yet been inspected since this process has taken place.
