Lanchester EP Primary School's Current Ofsted Report (2024) has just been released.

The inspection was a very positive process and allowed us to share all the great work that takes place on a daily basis in our school.

Our children, as always, were wonderful ambassadors and very keen to talk to the inspector about how proud they are of their school.

The inspector also commented to us about the great response to Parentview and the very high number of extremely positive written comments he had received from parents and carers.

Our governors also came out in force to support the school. Every single one attended the meeting with the inspector which definitely took him by surprise! However, this only goes to shows the dedication and commitment of our governing body.

We are exceptionally proud of the report and indeed our whole school community. Here’s to the next few years and continuing to be the very best we can.
