Our latest Ofsted visit

On the 15th - 16th March 2017 we were visited by a team of inspectors led by Her Majesty's Inspector Susan Hayter, to assess the progress we have made since the first monitoring visit in November 2016 and the full inspection in May when the school was placed in special measures. 

Following the first monitoring visit, we were judged to be taking effective action.  Since then, the work has continued in line with our school improvement plan and we are delighted to announce this has been confirmed by our most recent monitoring visit.

In her letter to us, Susan Hayter states: "having considered all the evidence I am of the opinion that at this time leaders and managers are taking effective action towards the removal of special measures."  It goes on to give an in depth analysis of the inspection against Ofsted's outlined areas identified for improvement.  

This letter marks the next stage in our journey to make Grange great again, and whilst we know there is a still a great deal of work to  be done, we hope it will go some way to restoring the confidence of everyone connected to the school that we are travelling in the right direction.  

The letter is available to download at the bottom of this page.  

To coincide with the release of the monitoring letter Miss Mander invited Telegraph & Argus education reported Chris Young to talk about our progress.  Read the story on their website by clicking here.
