Inspection of Ferham Primary School by Ofsted

Screen Shot 2015-05-20 at 15.43.48

Dear parent or carer,

We have just told your child’s school that we will inspect it on 21 to 22 May 2015. The lead inspector will be Mrs Christine Millett. We are writing to you because we would like to know what you think about the school. Please take a few minutes to read the leaflet which came with this letter. It explains why we inspect schools, and what happens during an inspection.

Your views about the school are important to us

If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at the school (including pupils on sick leave or who are temporarily excluded), you can tell us your views about the school by completing Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, at: http://www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk.

Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, including the progress made by your child, the quality of teaching, dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.

The inspectors will use the online survey responses when inspecting your child’s school.

To register your views, you will need to provide your email address, which will be held securely. It will not be used for any purpose other than providing access to the online survey. Neither schools nor Ofsted will have access to any email addresses.

Please complete the online survey by 11 am on 21 May 2015 as this will give the inspection team more time to consider your views. However, we will consider all online responses that are completed during the inspection.

Speaking to an inspector

If you are unable to complete the online survey, it may be possible to speak to an inspector during the inspection, for instance at the start of the school day, or to pass on messages to the inspectors if you are unable to speak to them in person. Inspection administrators will be happy to make the necessary arrangements. If concerns are raised about child protection, we may have to pass the information we receive to social services or the police. You can contact the administrators on 01695 566933. Inspectors will be pleased to receive your comments, but cannot deal with complaints about individual pupils or settle disputes between you and the school.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the online survey.

Yours faithfully

Ms Gail Gleaden

We have been learning to programme bee-bots.

Year two went to the English Institute of Sport.

 They enjoyed taking part in lots of different sports.

Class 4 have been finding out what William Shakespeare might have looked like.

We looked at ‘The Cobbe Portrait’ and have worked together to create our own pastel pictures based on this famous portrait. We worked in teams of 4 and each had our own section of the portrait to do – but we also had to work well as a team.

Class 4 are investigating how many different ways they can make their number.
