Ofsted Feedback Meeting – Monday 23rd October at 6pm

As you are aware, we had our school Ofsted inspection in July and the report was published in September. We were graded as good in all areas and the report was very positive. The report was short but our school feedback was much more detailed. 

At the meeting, we will give feedback, next steps and answer any questions you may have. 

The governors and I look forward to seeing you there. 

Have a lovely evening.

Updates and events for W/C 9th October

Good afternoon, 

I hope you are well and ready for the weekend. Despite the rain now, the forecast looks good for the weekend. 

Glossop Jog

The Glossop jog is on Sunday at 11am on the redgra. It will be great to see you all there taking part. Please bring in any sponsor money on Monday morning and give it to the office. We will meet at 10:45am and please look for our school sign and either myself or Mr Hannan. It will be a lovely morning and all donation and sponsor money goes to Rotary and local causes. 

Parking near school

I know this is a topic that keeps getting mentioned but the safety and welfare or pupils, parents and staff is really important. 

The disabled bays are for pupils with a blue badge or the driver of the vehicle with a blue badge. We have a lot of children in school with blue badges and complex needs who for mobility and / or health and safety reasons need to park near school. Please don’t drive down Chadwick street if this doesn’t apply to you. 

The owners of the garages had complaints from garage owners about their garages being blocked with cars. They put up the bollards and chain to prevent this. The entrance to the garages must not be blocked. They will change the code regularly. 

I fully understand that parking is really difficult near school. However, some people are ignoring these guidelines and the law and are putting the safety of the children at risk. 

Event for week beginning 9th October
