"This is a Good School"

I am delighted to inform you that the final Ofsted inspection report from our two-day inspection on Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 November 2022 is available by clicking here and is also available on the Ofsted reports website.

We are absolutely delighted to confirm that the outcome of the inspection was that… 

Hollyfield remains a GOOD school! 

The process was thorough, robust and professionally rigorous and I would like to thank all those who took part in the inspection; staff, governors, parents and pupils alike.

The school’s grading of ‘Good’ is a benchmark that is high under the current Ofsted framework. We are very pleased that the hard work undertaken by all in the school community has been recognised, including the rapid improvements made recently to the quality of education, our kind and happy children, the high expectations set by all staff and governors, and our ongoing commitment to ensure all pupils are supported effectively and achieve well.

The report itself is very detailed and highlights the many elements of effective provision at Hollyfield as well as the next steps needed to take the school forward.  What is extremely satisfying is that the areas listed for development formed part of our school improvement plan prior to the inspection, with some already at action stages.

I do hope that parents and carers take the time to read the inspection report in full as it represents a school that is not only good but one that has ambitious plans to improve further, with our children at the heart of everything we do. 

Thank you, as always, for your continued support.
