Ofsted Inspection Report now available

Dear Parents, Guardians, Carers,

In our recent April Ofsted inspection, the main school has been rated as good overall, with personal development and welfare seen as outstanding. BL6, in its first ever inspection, has been rated as outstanding.

I am very pleased with the outcome and there is much to celebrate. It has been almost 9 years since we were last inspected and we very nearly kept up with the much more demanding criteria for the highest grading. The inspectors raised three areas for improvement. Each of these had already been identified by the school, prior to inspection, and form part of our current School Improvement Plan.

You can find a copy of the report by clicking the link below and it will be published on the main OFSTED website within the next five days.
