Weekly Newsletter - Friday 12th October, 2018

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Inspection Feedback
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support this week during our inspection. The feedback provided by parents via the online parent view survey is overwhelmingly positive and we very much appreciate each and everyone of your views.
I know that you will be very keen to hear the feedback from the Ofsted inspectors following their recent visit. At this point their decisions are confidential as they have to be quality assessed by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate. It is expected that the report will be published in around 15-20 days time. However, I can let you know that we are very happy with the feedback we have been given. I look forward to sharing the report with you in more detail once it is all finalised.
