'Yenton is a good school, with some outstanding elements'
Ofsted, November 2013

Dear Parents/Carers,

Below, you can read a copy of our Ofsted Report from November 2013.

You will be as proud of the report as we are, as it recognises Yenton as a good school, with a number of outstanding areas. The inspectors were incredibly complimentary of the school and in particular the children and the staff.

The children's behaviour and learning has gone from strength to strength and we are very pleased this has been recognised by the Ofsted team. In your child's bag, there is a letter requiring your attention about a free trip as a reward for the children's fantastic behaviour and work.

Mr Mahmood, as Chair of Governors, has challenged the school to improve over the last two years and without his support, it would not have been possible. Thank you to all the Governors and particularly the parent governors, who have given up so much time to help the school.

I am incredibly proud to be Headteacher of Yenton and to have such a skilled and committed teaching staff, working with your support for the benefit of your fantastic children. Staff dedication and commitment to putting the whole child first has been a major reason as to why the school is now in a strong position.

There are always ways to improve and we will continue to strive to do so. Enjoy reading this report and be proud of your school and in particular your children's fantastic achievements.

Thank you very much for your support over the last two years – it makes such a difference.

Mr M Cadwallader
December 2013
