Ofsted Visit


As you will be aware, Istead Rise has been visited by OFSTED this week.

We need to tell you how incredible your children were during the inspection, displaying all of the school’s core values, impeccable manners and spoke about their learning with confidence. Please do congratulate your children on this. Thank you also to parents and carers for all of your positive comments and well wishes. The inspectors could see how overwhelmingly supportive our parents are of the school and of their children.

We are hoping to receive the report before the end of term and look forward to sharing this with you. Prior to this the outcome of the inspection must remain confidential​ until it has been checked for factual accuracy and quality assured against the evidence base the inspectors collected. Staff and children have not been told the outcome.

What we will say though is that we are incredibly proud of the children and staff here at Istead Rise.

Thank you for your continued support
