Dear Parents / Carers,
As many of you will know, OFSTED paid us a 'visit' just before the Easter holidays. We now have their final report and we have attached it to the school website for you to look at.
We are very pleased to inform you that your school continues to be rated a good school. More than that, the report highlights that we have developed the school in a number of key areas since the last inspection. We particularly liked the expression that our pupils 'flourish as a result of the good care and rich learning experiences provided'. The report provides a strong validation of both the school's ethos and the hard work and dedication of staff and governors. There are some areas that we can continue to improve and we will be working hard to achieve this.
We wanted to take this opportunity to thank all parents that contributed to the OFSTED online survey and also to tell you how superb all the children were on the day of the inspection. In fact, if they could have been rated, they would have been judged 'Outstanding' - just like any other day.
Please take some time to read through the report and we hope you will agree that this represents the best ever OFSTED report the school has received. To achieve this requires a great deal of collaboration between staff and governors, parents and carers and the wider community. Accordingly, our thanks go to everyone associated with Loughton School.
Andy George Sandy Blackledge
Headteacher Chair of Governors
