Dear Parents and Carers,
As you are aware just over two weeks ago the school had its Ofsted inspection and I am pleased to inform you that I have now received the outcome letter and can share the contents with you.
The judgment made was that the school continues to be good and safeguarding is effective. We are delighted with the outcome and believe that it is a reflection of the hard work to continue to improve the school since the last inspection four years ago. The inspection letter can be found on the school website and I encourage you to take time to read the contents.
I would also like to explain that the school received a short section 8 inspection which took place over one day. Short inspections are of schools that were good at their previous inspection to check that they remain good. These inspections last one day and typically take place every three to four years.
In the case of our outcome where the lead inspector judged that the school remains good, the lead inspector will also suggest next steps for the school to work on before the next short inspection. These recommendations are detailed towards the end of the letter from the inspector.
Being mindful of the environment, we have decided not to send out hard copies of the letter, but if for some reason you are unable to access the letter electronically paper copies will be available in the entrance foyer.
