Dear Parents and Carers,
As you know Manby Lodge was inspected by OFSTED on Tuesday 22nd November. I am now in a position to share the outcome of the inspection with you and I am delighted to inform you that Manby Lodge continues to provide a “good” level of education for the children. Under the new OFSTED framework if the school is judged to be ‘good’, the feedback is written in the form of a letter which is attached for you to read. This letter will also be published on the OFSTED website.
There are many positive comments in the report which identify the strengths of the school. We are particularly pleased that the inspectors identified not only that children’s achievement is good at Manby lodge, but that we also have a highly committed staff team and that the personal development of the children is at the heart of the school’s work.
As a school, we are committed to providing the best education for the children and consequently we are continually self-evaluating our provision. I am pleased to inform you that the ‘next steps’ in the report had already been identified by us and form part of our school development plan for this academic year. We are rapidly working towards achieving our targets in this.
The positive outcomes from our inspection support all of the hard work and commitment that has taken place at our school. I would particularly like to thank all of my wonderful staff team, who have worked tirelessly to ensure that the school has continued to improve and develop, and the Governors for their support. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of the parents and carers for their continued support in helping us to achieve our aims and objectives. But, most important of all, I would like to thank the children who continue to excel in so many different ways.
Now, we must continue to all work together to build on these fantastic successes with a continuing commitment to high standards and strong working partnerships which will ensure that our children will receive the very best education that they can at Manby Lodge Infant School.
