The Office of Education Standards carries out a variety of inspections services across the learning and education sector. We keep pace with sector changes continually reviewing our approach and frameworks. We provide feedback and feedforward making the most of our insights.
Inspectors make evaluations using a four-point scale. The four levels on the scale are defined as follows:
Excellent – exceptionally high quality of performance or practice.
Good – the expected level for every school in the Cayman Islands, both government and private.
Satisfactory – the minimum level of quality required for the Cayman Islands. All key aspects of performance and practice in every school should meet or exceed this level.
Weak – quality not yet at the level acceptable for schools in the Cayman Islands. Schools will be expected to take urgent measures to improve the quality of any aspect of their performance or practice that is judged at this level.
