Dear Parents/Carers

Following our recent inspection by OFSTED, the formal checking process is now complete and we are able to release the report to you. We are delighted to do so. We are very proud that Bishopstone Church of England School has been rated as good as a result of this inspection and he noted that there has been significant improvements since OFSTED inspectors were last here.  As you are aware the bar has been raised considerably within the inspections, this time the new Ofsted framework was applied which has set new and very much more demanding standards for schools.

The governing body has a clear focus on continual improvement in the school and both Miss Lindsay and I feel that the report gives a fair assessment of the school.  We are pleased that all the comments in the report pertaining to further improvement opportunities relate to issues that have already been recognised by Miss Lindsay and the Governors and are in the current School Improvement Plan.

The Ofsted inspector was very complimentary about the school, its teachers, children and the support it receives from our parents and carers. He showed us where we already have elements of outstanding and how we can build upon these so that we meet the criteria fully.

The entire report is a celebration of what can be achieved when all within a community work together to ensure our children are valued, cared for and challenged to fulfil their dreams.

We hope that you agree that this is a fair and extremely positive report and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support. Together we can ensure that we build upon this splendid success and continue to aim high!

Yours Sincerely

Mrs Gill May

Chair of Governors

KS2 Results 2016

2015-2016 saw just two children in our Year 6!!  Due to the small nature of this particular cohort we are not publishing the results on the website (as confirmed by the Standards and Testing Agency) due to preserving confidentiality for those children.  The results would mean that it would be easy to identify individual children, which is not acceptable.
