22nd January 2016
We are now in a position to share the report from our visit from Ofsted on 12th January 2016. Our visit was what is known as a ‘Section 8’ inspection, this was a one day inspection to judge whether the school was still classed as being ‘good’.
We are very pleased with the conclusions of Ms Olsson (HMI), our inspector; she was very thorough and did not leave a single stone unturned!
‘This school continues to be good.’
The inspection report is written by the inspector in the form of a letter to me as Headteacher (you can view this letter in full by clicking on the link at the end of this article) but have selected some quotes from the report to share here:
Thank you all again for your support throughout the inspection process; please pass on our thanks, from all the staff at Woodlands, to your children – they were magnificent, as always, and were the true ‘stars of the show’.
I’d just like to finish by thanking the staff & Governors at Woodlands. They continue to work extremely hard to ensure your children ‘soar’; such a positive Ofsted report is a true reflection of their dedication to school.
The full Ofsted report letter is available to read on our school website as of today:
