Dear Parents/Carers,

I am now in receipt of the final Ofsted report, which has judged Hele’s to be a Good school.  A copy of the report is attached for your interest.  There is much to celebrate within and I know you will share my pride when you read it.

Please note that there is nothing within this report that has come as a surprise to us – it absolutely mirrors our own self-evaluation.  The two areas for improvement are already cited in our improvement plan from this year and will continue to be areas to focus for the year ahead.  We are already making headway in both priority areas.

I am delighted that Ofsted recognised the ‘significant improvement since the previous inspection’ and also that ‘the school is well placed to improve further’.  This matches, again, our own self-evaluation but also gives us a renewed confidence to push on and look to become the outstanding school we aspire to be in every measure.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Hele’s School – there is no way we could have secured this excellent outcome without the support and commitment of each and every one of us associated with our school, adult and child.

Best wishes,
