Dear Birchfield families
As you know we were recently inspected by Ofsted. We have now received out finalised report and I am pleased to share the report and to inform you that Birchfield was graded as a ‘good’ school in all areas.
The report (which I have attached) recognises the many positive aspects of the provision at Birchfield:
Pupils are happy and confident individuals; Staff build caring and positive relationships with children as soon as children join early years; Leaders have devised an ambitious and well-sequenced curriculum so that pupils gain a broad and balanced education; Pupils achieve well in English, mathematics and science because these subjects are structured and taught well.
The outcome of the inspection is a significant achievement for our school. It reflects the journey of school improvement that has taken place over the last four years, irrespective of the considerable challenges we have faced.
I am sure you will join me in being extremely proud of our school, our staff and our children who have so much to celebrate. Thank for your continued support.
Mrs Z Thewlis
Head of School
