“ I just wanted to say well done for achieving "good" in the latest Osted inspection. This is a massive turnaround since the 2014 report and this is clear from the report that it is due to the hard work and commitment shown by you all to my children's wellbeing and education.
If there is anything that we collectively as parents or as individuals can do to help the school achieve "outstanding" then please feel free to ask.
Well done to you all. “ (Parent of Year 3 and Year R children)
