We received notification today that Danesgate will be receiving a Section 8 interim visit (Focus on research) from Ofsted tomorrow (Tuesday 29th September).
The purpose of this visit is a supportive dialogue around the measures employed throughout COVID to the present time and regarding planning going forwards.
There will be no formal outcome, nor report from the visit, rather a statement of facts letter subsequent to the visit.
There is a programme of meetings for the day (attendance, curriculum, safeguarding, behaviour, context), which will involve senior leaders, there will be no visits to lessons.
To re-emphasise, this is not an inspection, and gives us a chance to share the excellent response and good practice of the school to COVID, and the planning going forwards.
