An inspector calls...
School is inspected for the first time in over eleven years
We were surprised to receive a call from OFSTED on Monday informing us that we would be inspected on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. Although Outstanding schools are still exempt from routine inspection, OFSTED retain the right to conduct random inspections of outstanding schools as part of their risk assessment process. The inspection went smoothly and we now await the inspection report which will be published mid-March. This, along with three evenings of Parents' Evenings, have made this a long and stressful week for staff but the children have taken everything into their stride just as we would expect, and made a positive impression upon our visitors.
Term ends today; school will reopen on Monday 24th February. Any urgent enquiries may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org - we cannot guarantee an immediate response but will do our best. We wish all our children and families, and the staff a restful week.
