Ofsted Good Practice Study

I would like to draw your attention to a good practice study that we have just had published on the Ofsted website. I have been working with Sue Morris-King (HMI) and our fantastic pupils to try and capture the school’s journey over the last couple of years through the pupil’s eyes.

The case study focuses on the voice our pupils had in school through this time of change for us all. You can access it directly from here.

I hope you all enjoy reading the case study. I’d like to thank you all for the part you play in encouraging and supporting your child so that they then feel confident to seize the opportunities on offer to them at school.

I appreciate the partnership we have.

Kind regards
