In May 2014, Maidwell School was inspected by Ofsted. The Inspector commented:
"Outstanding teaching enables pupils to make outstanding gains in their learning from their starting points at school."
"The headteacher provideds very strong leadership. Determined efforts by the headteacher, subject leaders and governors have maintained the oustanding quality of teaching and pupils' achievement since the previous inspection."
"Pupils' behaviour and knowledge of how to keep themselves safe are excellent"
"The quality of teaching is regularly kept under review and staff support one another extremely well."
"Pupils' moral and social development is promoted particularly well."
"The school caters equally well for all groups of pupils, so all are very happy in school and make excellent progress."
"The curriculum is very well planned and offers pupils a very good range of experiences."
"The governing body is well led and both supports and challenges the school very effectively."
"Very good attention is given to individuals and their progress is tracked very well."
"Parents think highly of the school and all those who completed the 'Parent View' would recommend the school to others."
