Ofsted Inspection

Inspection of Woodcroft Primary School on 5th December 2018

Woodcroft Primary School was inspected, under section 8 of the Education Act 2005 (as amended) on 5th December 2018.

This was a short one day inspection designed to check that we are still a good school. Schools are only notified during the afternoon of the day before.

The inspector observed lessons, scrutinised books, checked safeguarding records, inspected the premises, spoke with pupils, parents and staff, and met with the school governors. He even watched part of the Year 2 Show. It was quite a busy day!

The final outcome will not be known until the report is published in a few weeks time. Parents will receive full information when it is available.

We would however like to thank everyone for their supportive comments and responses to the inspector. He also remarked on how he was made to feel very welcome by our school community, and he asked for thanks to be expressed on his behalf to the pupils, parents, staff and governors of Woodcroft.

A letter and guide from Ofsted were sent out to parents and carers  before the inspection. A copy of the letter can be accessed via the links below …
