Yesterday we met with Ofsted Inspector, Clive Close, to undergo our Pre-registration Ofsted Inspection. Our Safeguarding arrangements, plans for the building, curriculum plans and quality of leadership were all assessed in great detail and I’m delighted to say that we were successful in meeting Ofsted’s requirements. Although this isn’t a full inspection so a formal grading isn’t awarded it demonstrates that our plans for the school are in keeping with Ofsted’s rigorous expectations and is a great reward for all the hard work that has gone into the Hatchlands project so far. I would particularly like to thank Penny and Sue for their brilliant support during this inspection which was a real team effort.
As a result of our successful Ofsted inspection, we will now be awarded our DfE number which in turn means that OSCAHs can start the formal registration process to set up our wrap-around care. Once this in place I will notify you so that you can start booking your children on to the sessions that you need.
