Outstanding Ofsted

Read our Outstanding Ofsted Report here.

We are thrilled to share with you our latest Ofsted report, following the inspection conducted over three days from 20th to 22nd February.

Gary Rawlings, the Lead Inspector and David Radomsky, proved to be an absolute pleasure to have in the School. Not only did they have to contend with our boiler breakdown and subsequent loss of electricity, but also without access to computers and telephones, laptops and mobiles reigned supreme!

Gary and David understood that our main concern was centred on the child, its well-being and its developmental journey towards independent learning, in all its forms. Of course, they looked for supportive evidence, that our beliefs and policies were put into practice and rightly so, but they were so perceptive and their exchanges with staff showed interest and support with each group of children.
I have thanked Ofsted, for acknowledgment that, as professionals, we maintain the high standards that our children deserve.

I would also like to thank parents for choosing Dallington and believing in the spirit of our school. Thank you to the children for being a credit to us all and of course, a huge thank you to our loyal, committed and hard-working staff and governors who always put the interests of the children first.

What a year! Our 40th Birthday, an MBE and an Outstanding Ofsted.

Let’s celebrate!

Best wishes,
Mogg Hercules Headteacher
