School Ofsted inspections are dreaded by teachers but their reports are something which parents turn to when making crucial decisions about where to send their children.
Ofsted inspections have four different categories: Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement and Inadequate.
There are 13 Hull schools which were rated in the lowest two tiers on their most recent inspections. Some have since become academies and are therefore officially 'closed' therefore there is no report detailing the visit on the Government website.

These are the ones that didn't impress inspectors on their most recent visits, and a summary of why.
Archbishop Sentamu Academy
The inspectors rated it as 'requires improvement' and said: "The quality of teaching is improving. However, in key stages 3 and 4, it is still too variable to ensure that pupils make good progress in every subject. In 2017, pupils’ outcomes at key stage 4 were much lower than the national averages in English, mathematics, science and humanities. Girls outcomes were better than boys outcomes."
The Boulevard Academy
The inspectors said this school 'requires improvement' and noted: "Pupils do not make good progress across the school or in a wide range of subjects. In particular, pupils’ progress is weaker in mathematics than in other subjects.
"The most able pupils and disadvantaged pupils make less progress than their peers in many subjects. Overall, attendance is in line with the national average.
"However, disadvantaged pupils do not attend school regularly enough. In some lessons, pupils do not have pride in their work, as shown by their scruffy workbooks and unfinished work."
Francis Askew Primary
The report said this school required improvement and stated: "Pupils’ progress is uneven, particularly in reading and writing at key stage 2, because the quality of teaching is not consistently good.
"Relatively recent strategies to raise pupils’ achievement in these subjects have not had sufficient impact on raising standards securely. A number of subject and key stage leaders are relatively new to their roles and have not had sufficient time to improve the provision in their areas of responsibility.
"Leaders do not check closely that the work teachers plan meets the needs of all pupils effectively and challenges them appropriately."
Hull College is classed as requiring improvement. The most recent inspection said: "The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is not yet consistently good across all types of provision.
"Managers have been too slow to address the weaknesses in the quality of apprenticeships. Too many current apprentices are making slow progress. Too many learners are not challenged sufficiently to reach their full potential."

Mountbatten Primary School
As Mountbatten Primary it was deemed 'requiring improvement' in its final inspection. However, the school is now an academy as part of the Venn Academy Trust and is therefore classed as a 'new' school. There is no further detail.
Newland School for Girls
The school was rated as requiring improvement but is also now an academy, as part of Thrive Co-operative Learning Trust.
Oldfleet Primary School
The school is judged as requiring improvement. Inspectors found: "Leaders have not acted quickly enough to address the areas for improvement identified at the last inspection. Therefore, the quality of teaching is still too variable and pupils have not made rapid enough gains in their learning.
"Leaders do not routinely analyse and evaluate the impact of school improvement activities on pupils’ progress. This is limiting the school’s capacity to improve. The governing body does not always hold school leaders rigorously enough to account. Governors do not receive sufficiently detailed information, for example in head teacher reports, to assist them with this."
Sirius Academy West
This school 'requires improvement'. Inspectors said: "Recent outcomes at GCSE level have been below the national average. This is across a wide range of subjects, including English and mathematics.
"As a result of new leaders’ actions, outcomes are beginning to improve. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) in the main school and pupils who are disadvantaged achieve outcomes which are below the national averages for other pupils.
"The quality of teaching and learning is variable within and between subjects and in both key stages. While there are some strengths in teaching across the school, inconsistencies are limiting the rate of pupils’ progress. At times, teachers’ expectations of what pupils can achieve are not high enough. Although the new leaders are raising the aspirations of pupils and staff, there are still pockets of teaching where the level of challenge is not high enough."
St Richard's VC Academy
This was classed as 'requiring improvement' and inspectors stated: "Leaders have made many improvements in the school since the last inspection. However, they know that the quality of education is still not good enough.
"The curriculum has not developed pupils’ knowledge and skills well enough in the past. Leaders have made successful changes to the teaching of reading and mathematics. They are determined to quickly improve pupils’ learning in all subjects. Leaders are working hard to make sure that pupils remember more of what they have learned."
Thanet Primary School
Thanet Primary is now officially 'closed' according to Ofsted, as it re-opened as a new school under the Horizon Academy Trust. Prior to that it was deemed to be 'requiring improvement' by Ofsted.
Winifred Holtby Academy
Winifred Holtby is classed as requiring improvement. Inspectors said: "Although the quality of teaching, learning and assessment is improving, there is still variability between subjects.
"Improvements to teaching and assessment are not implemented to consistent effect in some subjects. While leaders and teachers are securing improvements in pupils’ current progress, this remains below average in some subjects and for some groups of pupils.
"Work is not consistently pitched to meet the needs of lower-attaining pupils. The progress of disadvantaged pupils is improving but still lags behind that of other pupils."
Woodland Primary School
Now part of the Humber Education Trust, Woodland Primary is classed as a new school also, but was rated 'requires improvement' in its final inspection.
Cavendish Primary was the only Hull school to be rated 'inadequate' from an inspection carried out in 2018. However this school is now officially closed, as it is part of the Horizon Academy Trust. The 2018 inspection said: "Safeguarding arrangements are ineffective. Leaders have not ensured that a culture of vigilance exists in the school.
"Not all members of staff have suitable knowledge of the risks pupils may face or the signs of harm pupils may display. Leaders have not ensured that communications, actions and records in relation to child protection are thorough.
"Governors do not have a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities. Consequently, they do not hold leaders to account effectively. Leaders do not ensure that pupil premium funding is used effectively to support disadvantaged pupils. As a result, their attendance is low and their outcomes lag behind those of other pupils nationally.
"The quality of teaching is variable. This means that pupils’ progress is hindered, particularly that of lower-attaining and most-able pupils."
