Letter from Mrs Atkinson about OfSTED

posted 6 May 2016, 06:47 by   [ updated 6 May 2016, 06:48 by Glen Bone ]

I apologise for not writing to you earlier but would now like to inform you that on the morning of Wednesday 4 May 2016, the Academy was involved in a Section 8 Ofsted inspection with only 30 minutes notice. Inspectors decided to convert this inspection to a full Section 5 inspection at lunch time on Thursday 4 May 2016.

The lead inspector confirmed that there was no expectation at this late stage for an Ofsted parental questionnaire to be distributed to parents. However, during the inspection, inspectors were able to review information from previous parental surveys and interviewed a representative from the Parent Forum. They also took into account responses from Ofsted’s online survey Parent View.

I am sure you will understand that currently the outcome of the inspection is confidential, but will be shared with all parents via the Academy website once it is published.

Yours faithfully

J Atkinson
