Ofsted 2018

Monday 2, July 2018

Dear parents and carers,


As you remember, the school was inspected on Wednesday 13th June 2018 by Ofsted under a Section 8 Inspection. The purpose of this inspection is to ascertain whether the school remains good and whether safeguarding is effective.

We are delighted to say the school remains a GOOD school and safeguarding is EFFECTIVE!

Your child will today bring home a copy of the Ofsted letter and you will be able to locate the letter on the school website also. We would like to highlight some of the real strengths of our school as written in the letter.

The accurate and robust school development plan, that sits alongside the schools evaluation form, correctly identifies any strengths and areas for development. The Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team lead their areas of school development effectively and rigorously. This enables us to ensure we provide a ‘good quality of education’. The majority of children are making strong and consistent progress as a result.

The love and care that we put into the school and children’s education, embodied within our school vision, has clearly made an impact on our pupils. Additionally, the school’s curriculum is identified as bespoke and encourages children with their learning. The relationships within the school were identified as a strength, with them ‘inspiring’ our children! Children were spoken to throughout the day; they were watched at playtime and also spoken to in lessons. The inspector states their behaviour is ‘impeccable’- well done children!

We are sure you will agree, the letter compliments our school and the high quality experiences and education your child receives at Tutshill C of E Primary School! As always, we will continue to drive the school forward, ensuring that all children have the very best from Tutshill C of E Primary School.

As previously stated, it is an absolute pleasure and privilege to lead Tutshill C of Primary School. We have the most wonderful teachers, governors, staff, parents and children!

Yours faithfully,


Miss J Lane and Mr R Riordan

Headteacher     Chair of Governors
