Ofsted Interim Assessment

I have been asked to distribute a letter from Sir Michael Wilshaw, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, regarding an interim assessment on our school that has been undertaken by Ofsted.

In summary the letter states that whilst Ofsted Inspectors haven’t visited the school since 2010 they feel our high standards and performance have been sustained.  As a result of this they have decide to defer our next Ofsted inspection until the summer term 2014 at the earliest.

We will of course, continue our drive towards school improvement, working hard to maintain high standards and good education for our all children.

Please download the letter from Ofsted here: Ofsted Interim Assessment
