OFSTED VISIT 5th & 6th March 2015

Dear All,

We have just been notified that Ofsted will visit school tomorrow and Friday. They ask if you would please complete the Ofsted online survey, Parent View at: www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk by 11am tomorrow: 5th March. The survey is very similar to our Oct 14 survey.

Your child will bring home a letter tonight, and you will also have received a text.

We are sorry that we have postponed tonight’s Parent’s Evening to next Wednesday; apologies for any inconvenience. Please do call in tonight or tomorrow if you have any urgent concerns.

Many Thanks.
