Welcome …

Special Notice:


Dear Parents and Guardians,

As you are aware we were visited by Ofsted on Tuesday of this week. I would like to thank the 25% of you for completing the Parent View survey within the time scale. This is a superb response to our request and the Ofsted Inspectors were really impressed by the significantly high proportion of our parents and guardians who took the time to let them know your views. Enormous gratitude to you for doing this.

A letter will be published in the weeks to come which will give you more information about what Ofsted found when they were here.

The children were brilliant on Tuesday (as they usually are!) and as a little thank you, I am giving them permission to wear non-uniform tomorrow Friday 18th January. There is no charge and they don’t have to bring chocolate like they did at Christmas – this is a small gesture to thank them for contributing on Tuesday.

Warm regards to you and thank you once again,
Mrs J Pitman
