OFSTED Inspection – December 2017

January 12th, 2018

As you know we were inspected by OFSTED on the 13th December 2017, I have now received the report, which I attach to this letter. The inspection was a short inspection, with two inspectors spending the day in the school, in that time they observed nine of our twenty nine teachers and met with pupils, Governors and members of the leadership team.

The result of the inspection is that the school remains ‘good’, it is fair to say that we are disappointed with the outcome as we judged ourselves to be ‘outstanding’. The report lists three ‘next steps for the school’ to address, though national clarity on several aspects of these next steps, is not yet complete.

I would like to praise all the staff, pupils and Governor’s for the work that they have all given to the school over the five year period since we were last inspected and congratulate them on the tremendous achievements we have made in this time.

Please follow the link below to read their report:
