Statutory Information for Maintained School Websites

Statutory Information for Maintained School Websites

To help you, we have provided a bullet point list of the key requirements as of May 2024. As more changes arise and are brought to our attention we will update this page accordingly. Note, for technical accuracy, some of the content below is taken directly from the GOV.UK website for which we provide a link here. We also outline how we help to show this information on your website.

Introduction (please read!)

We have spoken to a small number of lead OFSTED inspectors about our approach to the delivery of key and statutory information within the website. Note that Ofsted itself does not stipulate what you must publish on your website but they do check that your school complies with the statutory requirements and that the data provided on the site is appropriate to provide a clear reflection of the school.

How you show that information is for you to decide.
