From the Headmaster:
Well, that call on Monday morning caused a little bit of excitement...
Three days of lesson visits, interviews with children and staff and then rigorous book sweeps and evidence, evidence, evidence. Like any audit or inspection, a frankly gruelling three days and long nights.
We anticipate that the report will be published in approximately five weeks, and until that time it is expected that I say very little about any outcomes. I will carefully say that I am rather pleased with the feedback from the Reporting Inspector, in particular the aspects that we value and promote - self esteem, confidence and self-worth. There may have been mention about perseverance and resilience too...
Naturally, I will write to you all once we have a copy of the report.
So, forgive this shorter edition of the Deerstalker. Collective attentions were diverted to the last three days and exhausted bodies and minds need some rest.
I do hope that you all enjoy a very good half term, safe travels and let’s hope that spring has indeed sprung.
All you need is love...
What an assembly! In theory it was supposed to be about kindness, but the children certainly stole the show. So, for your viewing pleasure over to the children.
