Excellent Report

The children at a Hethersett school have been praised for their healthy lifestyles. 

In the latest report by the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted), Hethersett Junior School is rated overall as good with several areas rated as outstanding. 

The outstanding areas include the children’s knowledge and practice of healthy lifestyles and their involvement in the wider community. Inspectors also highlighted the caring and nurturing atmosphere at the school. 

In a letter to pupils lead inspector Karen Heath thanks the children for making the inspectors “so welcome.” 

“I agree with you that Hethersett is a good school where you feel safe and learn many skills which will prepare you for later life. We were very impressed with your good behaviour,” she states. 

The Inspectors were particularly impressed by the schools EcoClub.  The Headteacher and Senior Staff were praised for their vision and passion and Governors were commended for their support and monitoring, much of which is behind the scenes. 

Chair of governors Dr Fiona Doonan welcomed the report: “The two day inspection team was very thorough in its remit, interviewing pupils, parents, Headteacher, staff (teaching and non-teaching) and governors.  As the Lead Inspector said ‘ it was like turning over stones on a beach, there were more layers of evidence of a good school everywhere we looked.’  The children were enthusiastic to show the inspectors how much they enjoy their school and all the extension activities they take part in. 

‘I am pleased that the continued improvement of the provision made for children in the school has been recognised by Ofsted. The school’s drive is to make our ‘good’ school even better.”
