Dear Parents,

Hopefully by now you have all heard the news that following the recent Ofsted inspection our school has been judged to be "Good".

Of course this is what we all wanted to hear and what many of us have known for a long time now, but this only tells a small part of the story.

This judgement is the result of the hard work, determination  and dedication of The Head, the Leadership team and all the Staff and in no small part the Children.

The Inspectors told the Governing body at the summary meeting that the visit had been a pleasure, that the Children were open and honest and clearly happy to be in the school environment. They were well behaved and eager to learn,were always polite and all felt safe and secure. The school is giving the Children a good well rounded education and the staff were enthusiastic and happy in their teaching.

This judgement is however only the start. It is the start of the next phase as the school strives to offer an outstanding education and environment for the children. We can achieve this, not least because everyone at Mossgate School is determined to deliver that level of achievement.

The Mossgate success is a team effort , the Leadership team, the staff team, the governing body, the pupil team all pulling together and there is another member of that team .... You, the Parent team. Your support is vital. Your help in supporting the school, in supporting your children with their homework and many who come into school to help has got us to where we are now.

As Ms Lawler and the Staff increase their efforts to take the school to the next level it is essential that we all increase our efforts to help them get there.

Please read the Ofsted report and as parents I hope you can all take a great deal of confidence in the knowledge that the school is doing what it set out to do - to give the best start possible in the young lives of its pupils.

I look at the report and feel proud to be a part of a great school, I hope you feel the same.
