As everyone will remember, Ofsted came to inspect us at the end of last term. We have been bursting to tell everyone the outcome but we weren’t allowed to until the report is actually published. I am delighted to inform everyone that it has finally been released and the news is fantastic …. Eastbrook is now officially a Good School ! I want to thank all of the students, parents and staff who have put so much hard work in over recent years and contributed to this outcome … it really has been a wonderful team effort.
I think everyone involved with the school will recognise the big improvements we have made in recent times so we felt quite confident going into the process, but it is still very gratifying for a team of inspectors to come in for two days and confirm how far we have come and how well we are doing.
Although difficult, I will resist the temptation to pick out highlights from the report because it is all so positive … everything they talk about is really important and deserves recognition. I urge all parents and students to take a few moments to read it, and celebrate the fact that our school is now officially ‘Good.’
I announced the news to all of our students yesterday and they were all absolutely delighted. I told them how proud I was of the contribution they have made to our improvement and asked them to spread the word about our ‘news’ and what a good school Eastbrook has become.
And finally, I want to reassure everyone that the hard work won’t stop here …. everyone involved with the school is totally committed to continuing the journey we are on and working towards becoming an outstanding school in the near future.
