Dear Parents/ Carers,
As Chair of Governors I have immense pleasure in writing to you regarding the recent report which has been circulated to you. This ‘Good’ judgement is richly deserved by Mrs. Westhead and her excellent team and I am sure you will join me in congratulating all involved. Under Mrs. Westhead’s leadership the School has embraced changes to the Ofsted framework with enthusiasm; this is driven by the determination to provide the very best possible teaching and learning opportunities for all the pupils without ever losing sight of the caring and supportive ethos that makes our school’s learning environment so rich.
In light of historic events, this is a tremendous achievement and is one that the school community truly deserves. I am thrilled that the inspector obviously recognised the tireless challenging work, commitment, dedication and diligent professionalism that occur every day across our school.
School leaders and governors accept Ofsted’s findings and would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents and carers who completed the Ofsted parental survey on-line. Your comments were very helpful to the team. I feel it is worth clarifying that Lowton West Primary School strives to be friendly, open and responsive in all matters and is eager to receive your comments, concerns and feedback throughout the year.
Our ‘Good’ judgement will not bring a hint of complacency and we continue to share a constant desire for improvement. We have a detailed development plan in place to map growth throughout the school and the work to improve reading across the school and to further diminish the difference between disadvantaged pupils and others nationally is already underway.
Please feel free to contact Mrs. Westhead or myself via the school, if you wish to discuss any aspect of the report further.
Chair of Governors
