Hello everyone,

Last Wednesday we hosted a visit from Challenge partners. This was effectively an external Quality Assurance review of the school. We were reviewed by an ex Ofsted HMI and three senior leaders. We were assessed on a number of areas. I am delighted to share the outcomes with you.

School Improvement Strategies: OUTSTANDING
Outcomes for pupils: OUTSTANDING
Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment: OUTSTANDING
Overall Estimate: OUTSTANDING


This is a fabulous achievement for our wonderful school. We recognise that it is not an Ofsted Inspection but it clearly shows that we are moving in the right direction.
In addition to the above, we were able to put forward an area of excellence. We have many at this school, but this year decided to go for our fabulous Foundation unit. We are delighted to announce that our EYFS has been ACCREDITED as an area of excellence.

What a great week and my thanks to all staff and children.

Have a great weekend everyone and I hope to see you all at the School Association Christmas Fair this Saturday 11am-2pm.

Mark
