Ofsted Letter

Dear Carers/Parents

On Tuesday 29th September, we received  a Section 8 interim visit (Focus on research) from Ofsted.

The purpose of this visit was a supportive dialogue around the measures employed throughout COVID to the present time and regarding planning going forwards. 

There is no formal outcome or judgement, nor report from the visit, rather a statement of facts letter subsequent to the visit, which is attached here.

The visit focussed upon planning around attendance, curriculum, safeguarding, behaviour and context, and involved senior leaders – there were no visits to lessons.

To re-emphasise, this was not an inspection, and gave us a chance to share the excellent response and good practice of the school to COVID, and the planning going forwards.
