Ofsted Framework

Dear Parents,

You may be aware that Ofsted are trialling a new framework for inspection. As such, they are working with a number of schools, including Birchfield. Some inspectors will be working with us next week in school. This is not a live inspection, and does not result in a report or change the Ofsted rating for the school.

Kind regards

Mrs Thewlis
