Laurel’s Update

A huge thank you to the support from parents during our OFSTED inspection this week. From your encouraging comments on the gates to the 126 parents who completed the questionnaire you lifted us up. Our inspector commented how unusual it was to have such a high level of positivity from parents and I am truly grateful. The results of the OFSTED parent survey are available here: where over 90% of  parents ‘strongly agreed’ or ‘agreed’ with the statements. Our children were brilliant and their behaviour and conduct was highly praised.

Brookfield had an ‘ungraded’ inspection with one HMI Lead Inspector for two days. The school will receive a letter within the next three weeks which provides constructive feedback and we will share this with you. The inspector provided a comprehensive analysis of our school to me, my senior leadership team and governors which we were very pleased with and felt the process was robust and fair.

Thanks to all the parents and carers who have taken the time to read our Curriculum letters and attend meetings, we are looking forward to Year 1’s meeting on Monday 9-9.30am.
