Ofsted Information for Parents and Carers


I would like to thank the whole school community for their support this week during our OFSTED inspection on 13 and 14 March. We had many messages of support from parents which has meant a lot to me personally.  Thanks too to all those parents who completed the OFSTED parent view survey - the number of responses was very high.  You can see the results of the survey by following the link below. Click on each question to show the graph summary of responses.  

I would also like to thank all the students who were so positive and supportive throughout the inspection – I was very proud of how the whole school responded.


We should receive the OFSTED report in about two weeks.  As soon as the final report is published by OFSTED I will share it with parents.


It has been a very challenging few weeks in school but I feel the whole community has worked together and I feel very privileged to be the Headteacher of Dorothy Stringer School - this is the very special community.

Our last Ofsted inspection was in December 2013.  Our school was judged good in all categories.

Our school is part of the national organisation Challenge Partners and as such undertakes annual peer reviews to support continuous improvement.
