Ofsted Report: Good (March 2017)

posted 8 May 2017, 06:25 by Tetherdown Primary

To read the inspection report please click here.  At the end of his visit the Inspector stressed how much progress had been made since our last Ofsted inspection. He emphasised the improvements made with regards to systems and processes put in place to monitor learning and to enhance teaching. The Inspector was especially impressed with the writing curriculum at Tetherdown, which he thought was very engaging, and with the Early Years teaching which gives children an excellent start in this school. As a result of this positive feedback, we are disappointed that we were not able to improve our rating to ‘Outstanding’ as we feel that significant improvements have been made in the required areas since our last inspection.

As a Governing Body we do believe that this school is outstanding in many ways, particularly in the creativity of the curriculum and in the sense of community that is provided for our children. We are also mindful that a single-day Ofsted Inspection can only ever provide a snapshot of the school. We are confident that our goal of being a school where children are offered many opportunities to grow, thrive and to respect one another remains.
