In March 2022 Ofsted came for their latest inspection.

In my 20 years at the School, we have never been inspected under the same framework. This time was no different. Ofsted’s framework currently is interested in the processes and not the outcomes of schools. As you are aware, we have an unblemished history of placing all our Year 2 children into the right schools for them – including the most academic establishments. As a specialist 7+ school, I know your preference will be outcome and the assured continuing success in our aim to meet the needs of every child which are delivered using our time-honoured processes which you see daily.
We are very pleased that, in the grading of Good, the report rightly recognises the success of our Early Years provision and the Behaviour and Attitudes demonstrated by your children during the visit. I should mention that, before the lead inspector began the process, we were told very few schools should expect an Outstanding judgement anymore.
The report grades us as requiring improvement in three areas and we have already begun to implement measures to ensure that all requirements are fully met.
A consultation document on our proposed Relationships & Sex Education (RSE) policy will be sent out shortly so that your valued opinions on this aspect of your child’s personal development can be considered in our discussions.
We will welcome what is likely to be an unannounced re-inspection soon and the expected affirmation that we have addressed the areas judged to require improvement.
In the meantime, I also know we have your trust and support to continue to do what it says on the tin:
‘The school strives to guide and support each child at our school in exploring their potential in an exciting, nurturing and safe environment. We encourage children to become confident, independent and self-reliant, while enjoying the value of family, friendship and community.’
My door is always open should you wish to discuss aspects of this current inspection.
