Please see below an extract from a letter from Mr Pickering (23.10.12) regarding our OFSTED inspection.  


In September, when he was launching the revised and enhanced school inspection procedures, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Schools, Sir Michael Wilshaw said “I believe all children have the right to a good education and that belief is at the heart of our work at Ofsted.  I make no apology for introducing an inspection framework that raises expectations and focuses on the importance of teaching.” We were most pleased, therefore, when in early October the Knights Templar School was inspected that it was judged to be a good school offering a good education.  We are certainly not complacent, however, we want the very best for our pupils and whilst most teaching seen was judged to be good or outstanding we want all of it to be so. Whilst our results are good we want them to be even better.  We were particularly pleased that the inspectors’ views as to how we can improve totally matched our own improvement plan: their priorities are our priorities.  The pupils of our school have every right to be proud.  The inspectors saw them both in the classroom and around the school; their conclusion was very clear, they found their behaviour and general manner to be outstanding.

OFSTED manage a Parent View survey on their website.  This enables parents to leave feedback on their child's school outside of the normal inspection timeline.  We would like to encourage you to complete this form, if you have time, when you visit the OFSTED web site.  A direct link to the page can be found by clicking the icon below.
