The latest OFSTED inspection report for Brent Knoll was published in July 2015. The report highlights the many strengths of the school with all judgements being either good or outstanding. We are particularly pleased with that Behaviour and Safety was judged to be outstanding.
Brent Knoll fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection and that because of the day to day contact with children, school staff are well placed to observe the outward signs of abuse.
Parents can request a paper copy of the information on this website free of charge. Please contact the school office.
