Dear Parents/Carers

On the 6th May 2015 The Joseph Rowntree School welcomed a team of Ofsted inspectors who carried out a one day 'Section 8' inspection of the school focusing on our provision for Pupil Premium students. The inspectors looked at lessons, examples of work and interviewed students, staff and governors as part of their day in the school. The letter which they have sent to us is available to read below.

Although this type of inspection carries with it no formal grading, we were very pleased that there was a clear recognition of the improvements that as a team we have been working very hard on to improve our school.  The identified areas for improvement are areas which we were already aware of and have rigorous strategies in place to ensure further improvement. We are pleased with the positive nature of the feedback we received from the inspectors, and will continue to work on improving our school to make it the best that it can be.

Thank you for your support,

Richard Crane
