HMI Visit – 19th and 20th January – published report

Last month we were visited by our HMI and an Ofsted inspection team for a monitoring visit to see how the school was improving. The BRILLIANT news is that we have been brought out of Special Measures in record time. In fact the school impressed the inspectors so much that the school was deemed as ‘Requires Improvement’ but with three out of the five categories judged as ‘Good’. 


This dramatic improvement is very unusual in such a short space of time and testament to the hard work and dedication of all of the children, staff, Governors – and of course you, our parents/carers.


The inspection has shown the school to have achieved an impressive turnaround with inspectors saying that there have been ‘significant improvements’ throughout the school as there is ‘an absolute commitment to the pastoral care and well-being of all pupils’ as well as their academic success.

We would like to thank all of you who have supported us during the last sixteen months. Your help, encouragement and suggestions to improve our school have been invaluable. We know that we will continue to work together to make the school even better.
