Dear Parents / Carers
I hope you have all had a chance to read the report received from Ofsted last week confirming that we continue to be a good school. Following the report, Miss Wareham and I received a letter from Clare Kershaw, Director of Education, acknowledging the work done and the strengths of the school, including:
In addition to this, Miss Wareham received a letter of congratulations from The Venerable Elwin Cockett, Chair of the Diocesan Board of Education. In it he writes
“I would like to congratulate you and your governors and staff on the outcome, and in particular acknowledge the deeply embedded determination of you and your governors to do the best for all your pupils that has ensured that the school has continued to move forward since the previous inspection”.
He goes on to acknowledge that “several changes in leadership” have had their impact. It is no secret that the school has been through a turbulent time since the last inspection, but this further enforces the hard work and commitment of Miss Wareham, the Staff (and governors) to ensure the school was and is a place that deserves comments such as those in the report.
I would like to express my personal thanks, as well as on behalf of the Governing Body, to Miss Wareham, the Staff and those parents who all commit to making Matching Green Primary the school that means so much to us all.
Chair of Governors
