Ofsted and academic performance[edit]

Broadland has been regularly judged as "good" for overall performance. In its 2016 inspection Ofsted said, "This school continues to be good. Pupils who met with us enthused about the school. Pupils enjoy school and are proud to be part of it. They say that its small size means that everyone knows each other well, friendships are easily forged and staff are always approachable and caring. They value the additional support provided by staff, saying teachers are ‘always there’ to help and look after them. We found that pupils behave well, show good manners and conduct themselves sensibly and maturely around school. "[1]

Results for 2015 showed a marked improvement on previous years, with an increase on progress, compared to previous years.[2]
