We have now been sent the final report of Great Heath from Ofsted which can be found HERE

A copy will be available on the Ofsted web site within 5 days.

I am sure you will be pleased to read that Ofsted consider us still to be a good school with many strengths.

They have of course left us with some specific areas for improvement that we have already begun to address but overall I am very pleased with the outcome and would like to thank all of the staff who work here at Great Heath for their hard work, dedication and commitment to the school and the pupils and community that we serve.

I would also like to thank all of you for your ongoing support – as I have said many times before – together we can make this school the best possible school it can be and one in which your children can thrive. Thank you especially to those of you who responded to the on-line questionnaire and in person to the inspectors. Your comments were shared with myself and Mrs Brown and I was very proud and moved to hear how pleased many of you are with the work that we do. Thank you so much.

My very best wishes

Steven Vincent

Executive Principal
