Ofsted Report

Please read the Inspection Report from our recent OFSTED visit. The team found many strengths at Woodthorpe and concluded that we are a GOOD school! We are very pleased with some of the comments they made and the positive aspects that they noted.

As always our children were the real stars of the show - impressing the inspection with their usual charm, indeed the team commented 'pupils are polite, friendly and considerate to others' - but we knew that already!! They were also impressed with the way we work together as a team - children, parents and staff, saying: 'relationships are a real strength and give pupils the confidence to try hard'.

Thank you, and well done to all involved!
