HMI Review - Wednesday 4th February 2015

Dear Parents,

We have been notified that one of Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI, Ofsted) will be in school tomorrow, Wednesday 4th   February.  This visit will be used to hold the school to account and assess the progress we have made since the Ofsted inspection last term.  She will also scrutinise the Local Authority’s Action Plan, and that of the school, and judge them to be either ‘Fit for Purpose’ or ‘Not Fit for Purpose’.  Once the Local Authority’s Action Plan has been approved it can then be made available to parents as promised by Chris Palmer.  Also, the LA will then be able to give you further information regarding the future of the school.
As mentioned in last Friday’s newsletter, we would very much appreciate it if parents/carers would go onto Parent View click on ‘Give Your Views’ at the top, and express their views of the school.  Last term reflected poor views and, whilst we know that we need to continue to work hard to continually improve, we hope that parents are feeling more positive about the school and that this would be reflected in Parent View.  Please share your comments.  IF THIS COULD BE DONE BEFORE TOMORROW THAT WOULD BE PARTICULARLY HELPFUL.  For those of you attending Parents’ Evening today we will have the computers in the IT suite logged on to the appropriate page so you would be welcome to do this then if that is more convenient for you.  We will also do this for the second Parents’ Evening on Wednesday 11th.
Many thanks
K Luther-Jones
