Dear Parents and Carers,
Following our recent OFSTED inspection on 5th and 6th February 2019 we have now received our final report. Please click here to see the full report.
In this recent inspection, the school has been judged overall to be within the category of ‘Requires Improvement’.
Having said that, the inspectors found many positive strengths within the school and were satisfied that the school is already making progress towards ensuring high quality teaching and learning for the children of St Agnes CE Primary School. They said ‘the school is wonderfully calm yet full of talk‘ and ‘arrangements for safeguarding pupils, parents and carers are exemplary.’
Page 2 of the report highlights what we now need to work on and this is what we will be focusing on in our school improvement plan.
It is hugely disappointing for all members of staff that the outcome of the inspection has found that the school requires improvement and will undoubtedly be disappointing for you as parents also. However, it must be said that all staff in school are highly committed to providing the best education for the children of St Agnes and the report helps us ensure where we now need to focus more on.
With the publication of the report, now is the time to look forward and continue to address the issues that you as parents are most concerned about – that is ensuring that the children of St Agnes Primary School receive the high quality education that they deserve in a safe environment where all children are supported to reach their potential. We hope that you as parents will continue to support us with this aim.
To give parents more opportunity to discuss concerns you may have regarding the OFSTED report and the progress that we are already making in improving the school, we would like to invite you to an open parents’ meeting in the main hall on Friday 8th March 2019 at 9.15am.
We look forward to having the opportunity to talk further with you at that time.
Mr S Uddin
