OFSTED Inspection 2023
Please see an announcement from Mr Solly below...
We received the phone call from Ofsted today to inform us that we will be inspected on Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th March. The inspection will be a 'Section 8' inspection, which 'Good' schools receive normally every 4 years (our last inspection was September 2017, and we were rated as a 'Good' school)
Two inspectors will spend the next 2 days meeting with senior and middle leaders, talking to students and observing lessons and social times.
When schools are inspected, Ofsted collate the views of parents. We completed the same survey with you in the summer term, and we were very happy with the responses you gave, however we cannot use these, even though they included the same questions. In the summer we asked any parents who were unable to rate the statements as 'Strongly Agree' or 'Agree' to get in touch with us so we could resolve any concerns you had - we didn't receive any correspondence following this request. Even though you may have completed the survey in the summer, please could you complete it again to support us with the inspection - the link is here: https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. As before, if you are unable to answer Strongly Agree or Agree, please get in touch to let us know the details so that we may again be able to resolve any concerns you may have.
When we have information about the outcome of the inspection I will communicate this as soon as I am able to, but it usually takes several weeks before any documentation is published.
