Ofsted 'Outstanding' - November 2023
Please take the time to read the Ofsted report below: after a long wait, an inspection team visited The Grove on 7th and 8th November 2023 to conduct a full Section 5 inspection. Unlike a 'light touch' inspection, this means that they were able to regrade the school if appropriate. However, I am delighted to say that provision here was graded as outstanding in all areas. This is quite an achievement under the current framework, and we very proud of what it says about the school.
At The Grove, staff, parents and governors all work tirelessly together for the children, creating a happy place where they can thrive. This has been recognised by Ofsted, and we are thrilled that our hard work has been validated by them!
You can find out more about our school by following this link to the DfE website: it helps parents to compare specific data against local and national averages.
If you are interested in finding out what our current parents think about the school, you can find out by looking at the results of our Ofsted Parent View Questionnaire, completed for the inspection that took place in November 2023.
We are delighted that parents think so positively of the school.
If a parent has a question or a problem, it is important that they speak to the class teacher or school leadership team about the issue so that we can help.
