Parent/Child formula depending on status



I am setting up a status column on a project plan.

The statuses we are using are:

Not Started, In Progress, Overdue & Complete.

I want to use a formula on the parent rows to look at the statuses of the children rows and return a status based on the following:

If any of the children are overdue then parent status is Overdue.

If all are Complete then parent status is Complete

If all are Not Started then parent status is Not started

If not any of the above then parent status is In Progress

Any suggestions gratefully received!

Kind regards,
