Ofsted report

24th April 2014

Ofsted's report into GFS' first four terms has now been published and can be found here.

We're pleased that the two inspectors highlighted a few of GFS' excellent features - including our pupils' behaviour, the design of the curriculum, the great extra-curricular activities and the strength of the governing body. But we're obviously disappointed in the overall conclusion the inspectors drew from our first year's internal data - and were surprised by how markedly it differed from the various feedback GFS has otherwise received from parents and visiting educationalists.

Nevertheless, the senior leadership team and governing body take the inspectors' views - like all feedback - very seriously and GFS' new Headteacher, who was appointed shortly before the inspection to start work later this term, will be overseeing GFS' continued progress and response to the inspectors' findings.

Everyone at the school will continue to work hard to deliver an excellent education for every pupil - and we look forward to practicing the very 'growth mindset' we see in our pupils, as we continue to grow.
