Dear Parents,

Following our recent Ofsted inspection, I am delighted to confirm that Holt Farm Junior School is officially a 'GOOD' school with 'OUTSTANDING' Personal Development and Welfare.

The summary of key findings confirms that:

  • The passionate and focused determination to raise standards has led to rapid improvements in the quality of Teaching, Leading and Assessment;

  • The schools vision 'ensuring every child achieves' is central to the work of the senior leaders and reflected in their effective monitoring systems that ensure pupils achieve well;

  • Pupils enjoy school. Their attitudes to learning are good and they show respect and courtesy towards one another in class and around the school. Pupils take great pride in their work and this is reflected in the good quality presentation in books;

  • The schools core values are well understood, reflected in daily routines and relationships and promoted around the school in the high quality effective presentations and displays.

I do hope that you will read the entire report which clearly shows the huge strides the school has made since the Ofsted inspection in November 2016.

I would like to thank the SEEAT, Governors, my dedicated team of staff, parents and of course, our children on this fantastic achievement.

I am looking forward to even more success in the future!

Best wishes,

Mrs Wass
