Welcome to the new half-term at Dyson Perrins. I trust that you and your children had an enjoyable holiday and are ready for the Spring term to start in earnest.
As you are aware, we had a visit from the Ofsted inspection team on 28 and 29 January 2015. The visit was not a surprise as we knew we were due to be inspected and had been working well towards preparing for this. That said, it is always a tense time for all involved with the school, as we clearly wanted to show ourselves in the best possible light. I was obviously thrilled therefore when the report was published and confirmed that we have been rated as a 'Good' school overall and that we gained a rating of 'Good' for all categories including 'Leadership & Management', 'Behaviour & Safety', 'Quality of Teaching', 'Achievement of students' and 'Sixth Form Provision'.
This is a tremendous achievement for all involved with Dyson Perrins and validates the quality of improvement work that has been taking place at our school over recent times. Your support throughout this period has been invaluable and I want to thank you for taking the time to complete Ofsted's 'Parent View' questionnaire during the inspection and prior to it when we've sought your feedback. The Ofsted inspection team commented on the positivity of views expressed and highlighted the individual written testimonials and phone calls they received in support of what we are doing for your sons and daughters at Dyson Perrins. I will continue to seek your views and opinions as we move forward and believe that working together is vital in order to provide the best possible education for your children.
