Ofsted Visit 22nd November 2016

Ofsted is visiting the school tomorrow, 22nd November.  It is an opportunity for us to show what the school does to make a difference in Maple Cross.

Part of their inspection is to ask parents and carers for their views about the school. Your child will be coming home today with a letter from Ofsted explaining how you can make your views known.  I attached a copy of the letter to this e-mail in case we have another downpour of rain at going-home time.  I have also attached Ofsted’s parents’ inspection guide for you.

Please do go to the Ofsted website and give your views.

Something to reflect on during your summer…

Dear Everyone,

Further to my end of year letter coming out today, I wanted to share a section of the Headteacher’s report to governors that we can all be extremely proud of. Our Awe and Wonder Section shares the things the school community does that we don’t have to; the things the school community does that adds something extra to Maple Cross; the extra things we do to make the difference. We can all be very proud of our Community. Enjoy your summers and thank you.
