OFSTED Report from 2013 Inspection


 Dear Parents/Carers,

I am delighted to inform you that our recent inspection by Ofsted has been very successful. Of the four areas that Ofsted inspect, two of them have been graded outstanding and two graded good.

This is a fantastic achievement as since our last inspection Ofsted have “raised the bar” again. The standards needed to meet the highest grades have been significantly raised. Many schools have struggled to maintain their previous grade, but we have improved ours with half of the Ofsted judgements graded outstanding. We have achieved better Ofsted judgements than the vast majority of primary schools in our area.

The report recognises that our nursery and reception provides “very good provision”, where “children enjoy learning, becoming active participants.” Teaching throughout the school is “good overall” and “much is now outstanding.” Ofsted said that our pupils “gain very great enjoyment from their learning throughout the school and from the extremely close relationships they develop with staff.” There are many more extremely positive judgements made in the report, which I hope you will find time to read and share with your children.

I am extremely proud of all the staff at Northway, who provide such a very high quality of care and education for your children. I am particularly proud of all of the children who were praised for their “exemplary” behaviour and “their love of learning which strongly supports their progress.” As parents you should be very proud of your children.

Finally, I would like to thank all of you for your continued support for your children and for all we do at Northway. Such high levels of success could not have been achieved without the excellent partnership between home and school.

Please share this report with others in the community who may be looking for a nursery or reception place for their children in the near future, as our school will only continue to thrive with your support.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Gill        &        Mrs Green

(Head teacher)        (Chair of Governors)
