We hope that you will be as delighted as we are with the Ofsted Monitoring report following our inspection on Wednesday 3rd October 2018. As we had previously been graded a good school this was a one day monitoring visit and under the Ofsted framework, a one day inspection cannot in itself change the grade. However you will see that the inspector recognised that we were more than “good”. This means that we now fall under Ofsted Outcome 2 for a monitoring visit: “The school remains good and there is sufficient evidence of improved performance to suggest that the school may be judged outstanding if it received a section 5 inspection now. The school will be informed that its next inspection will be a section 5 inspection, which will typically take place within one to two years after the publication of the section 8 short inspection report.”
