I write to inform you that we have received our Inspection Report, the report has just been released. As you will be aware in February this year we were inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) as a Regulatory Compliance Inspection (RCI), this inspection checks that a school's policies and practices are compliant with the regulations set by the Department for Education.
To clarify, during the two-day inspection ISI Inspectors assessed the school's compliance with the Independent School Standards Regulations, including the National Minimum Standards for Boarding Schools and the Early Years Foundation Stage. The usual outcome is a binary judgement of either ‘met’ or ‘not met’ against each applicable standard.
It brings me great pride to announce that Kitebrook Preparatory School successfully met every applicable standard throughout the report. The report highlights Kitebrook's ethos, success, and achievements, confirming the high quality of education that our pupils receive. The Reporting Inspector provided very pleasing verbal comments on the strength of the school leadership team and that the quality of teaching was very high with pupils making excellent progress in a range of areas which was evident from the places offered at senior schools both last year and this year.
My thanks go to the Kitebrook staff for all their hard work in delivering the curriculum and co-curricular activities, to the pupils who are a credit to the school and lastly a huge thank you to you the parents for all of your support over the course of this year.
