Excerpt from our Headteachers letter regarding our Ofsted report in December 2014:

“Our Ofsted report, from the December inspection, is published on the Ofsted website and I am required to provide you with a copy (attached). I hope that you will be pleased and satisfied with the progress that we have made since the last inspection. The inspection regime is much ‘tighter’, the standards are much higher and the expectations greater so we are pleased that the progress we have worked hard to bring about is being recognised. There are two main issues for us – essentially those areas which we need to work on in order to become ‘Outstanding’ (and that’s the goal by the next inspection) – and they are to improve the consistency across the school and to ensure that the least able progress at the same rate as others. If you wish to discuss the Ofsted report with us, please contact your child’s Student Manager or you can email me any comments you have via info@edmonton.enfield.sch.uk

Ofsted Inspection 4 -5 December 2014

Dear parent or carer

Inspection of Edmonton County School by Ofsted

We have just told your child’s school that we will inspect it on 4–5 December 2014. The lead inspector will be Ann Behan. 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: 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. Written comments can also be sent to the school in a sealed envelope, marked confidential and addressed to the inspection team.

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 11am on 04/12/2014 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 01173115246. 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

Sara Whalley

As well as completing the survey, you can use Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, at any time during the school year to give Ofsted your opinion of your child’s school. You can also use Parent View to see survey results for schools across England. Visit www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk, or look for the link on the main Ofsted website: www.ofsted.gov.uk
