The Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills – otherwise known as Ofsted – is responsible for inspecting schools and other educational facilities in England.

All schools are inspected on a number of factors including quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, leadership, development and more.

At the end of an inspection, each school is given a rating of either outstanding, good, requires improvement, and inadeqate – outstanding being the best rating a school can receive.

Previously, those which had been rated ‘outstanding’ were exempt from further routine inspection as long as data showed they were “maintaining performance” under a policy introduced by the Government in 2011.

But, the exemption was removed in 2020 meaning that all ‘outstanding’ schools last visited before 2015 will now get a full inspection – although it has been said it may take six years to get through them all.

Below is a list of the primary schools relevant to Derbyshire Times readers, all thought to be among the top schools in the country by Ofsted, including some which have not been inspected for over a decade.
