'GOOD' School - Ofsted May 2019
It is with a tremendous amount of pride and delight that we are able to share with you the final report and outcomes from our recent Ofsted inspection (click here). You will see from the report that we have been graded as Good in all areas. This is a wonderful achievement especially as we have not yet been open for three full years. The report is incredibly detailed and accurately captures so many of the special qualities that our school has. It also details very clearly the areas that we still need to work on – all things that we agree with and had already identified through our own school evaluation.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my amazing team of staff who work hard every day to give the best for our children. Setting up a new school has been incredibly rewarding but also very challenging and it is the dedication, faith and determination of the staff team that has helped us to get to this point on our journey and I feel privileged to work with them.
We are proud of our children every day and the inspection days were no exception. The inspectors raved about how polite, courteous, confident and articulate our children were. They speak so knowledgably and passionately about our school.
I am not sure that I can pick my favourite quotes from this one as I am incredibly proud of all of it. We hope that you will take the time to read it and celebrate this achievement – it is recognition of the efforts of our whole Ridgeway Farm family including children, staff, parents and governors. We will be doing some celebrating and publicising after half term!
Thank you so much for all of your continued support as we grow as a family and go from strength to strength.
Mrs Carly Luce
