The Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) is an independent government department that inspects and regulates schools and services providing education for learners of all ages.
Every week the organisation carries our hundreds of inspections throughout England and publishes the results online. Their role is to promote improvement and their goal is to achieve excellence in all schools.
When selecting a primary or secondary school, performance tables will help in judging how well a school has performed.
The tables give information on test results, teacher assessments and more for Medway as well as national averages and historic data over the past four years.
