Dear parents and carers,

Further to our recent OFSTED visit, please find attached a copy of the inspectors report for your review.

I am very pleased with the report and would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff for their long term dedication and efforts which contribute to keeping the standards so high at St Mary’s.   We will focus on the development points the inspector noted and continue to build on all our successes he saw and applauded.

Thank you also to the parents and children who took the time to complete the OFSTED online survey before the Inspection.  Your feedback is very useful to inform us and the inspectors.

I feel that this OFSTED report shows what a truly remarkable school St Mary’s is.  We are diverse, curious and enjoy challenging ourselves.   The school has been a wonderful place to work over the last 8 years, I have been extremely happy here. I have enjoyed working with the children, staff, governors, and parents and carers alike to make our school the best in the universe.

I look forward to seeing many of you and saying goodbye at the end of year summer BBQ at Rectory Gardens on Friday 13th July.   This event is open to all St Mary’s families and we would love to see you there.

Kind regards

Fran Hargrove
