Ofsted Report

5th April 2019


Dear Parents,


Ofsted Report - March 2019

Please find attached our Ofsted Report following our Inspection on the 12th and 13th March 2019.


We are all extremely pleased and proud of the report and to announce that we were able to maintain our Ofsted 'Good' rating. Since our previous inspection in 2014, many things have changed at Highfields and in education, and the Ofsted inspection framework has made it significantly harder to maintain this 'good' standard and some local schools have not been able to maintain grades previously awarded by Ofsted. 


I feel it is only right that my first thank you is to the children, as always they were a credit to the school and impressed all three Inspectors with their enthusiasm, manners, politeness and exceptional behaviour. We are so proud of them all.


I would also like to take this opportunity to recognise the ongoing commitment and dedication of all of the staff at Highfields who all work so hard to make sure that Highfields truly is a place to give children, 'roots to grow and wings to fly'.


A big 'Thank You' also to all of you who took the time to log on to 'Parent View' to share your views of our school and to those of you who spoke to Inspectors on the playground.  Your support, as ever, is much appreciated and valued.  


The Ofsted report will be uploaded onto our school website today and we have been informed by Ofsted that it will be on their website within five working days (12th April 2019).  Staff and Governors will now work together to write an action plan to address the three action points we have been provided with.



Yours Sincerely,

Mrs S. Garratt
