A new date for your diary

Posted on 14 June 2019 by Mr Roundtree

On Wednesday 10 July at 5pm, we invite you to come along and reflect on our recent Ofsted inspection.

We’re delighted to have been judged as ‘good’ in all areas.

The meeting is an opportunity to reflect on the inspection. We’ll talk briefly about the inspection, we’ll talk about the next steps for us as a school, and you’ll have time to ask us any specific questions about the inspection report, or let us know any comments or concerns.

On the same day, teachers are available from 3.30pm to 5.00pm to talk through the end-of-year report your child will have brought home – why not pop along for that and stay for the Ofsted meeting?
