Ofsted Report

15th November 2016

Dear Parents & Carers,

You will be aware that the school was inspected by Ofsted on 12th and 13th October 2016 and I am writing to inform you that the final report is now available; it is attached to this letter and will be on the school website www.meridenceprimaryschool.co.uk  

The grades that can be awarded are Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement or Inadequate.  Previously, the school was judged as ‘Requires Improvement’ in October 2014.  However, in this recent inspection, I am pleased to say that the school was judged as ‘Good’ in all areas with some elements of outstanding practice also identified. 

The school was praised by inspectors in a number of areas, including for the quality of teaching and learning and for the attainment and progress of pupils.  The inspectors also judged that the areas for development identified in our previous inspection had been fully addressed.  However, as with all inspections, further areas for development have been identified including the development of the skills of middle leaders and improving standards in reading so that they are as strong as writing and mathematics. 

Whilst this judgement of ‘Good’ is a real achievement and something we can all be proud of, it is important to know that staff and governors are already working towards ensuring the school becomes ‘Outstanding’ in all areas.  Your children deserve to receive a world class education and we are now well on the way to making that a reality. 

I am sure you will all join me in congratulating the whole school community (staff, pupils, governors, parents, carers and volunteers) who have worked tirelessly to secure this tremendous achievement. 

Yours sincerely,

Dr Adam Boddison


Board of Governors
