In Feb 2016, the school was inspected by Ofsted and we are delighted to inform you that West Tytherley continues to be a good school.  They also found safeguarding to be effective across the school.  The visit was the first short inspection carried out since the school was judged to be good in 2011.

The Ofsted Inspector wrote: 

‘Parents are positive about their child's educational experiences.'  

'Parents are pleased with the progress their children make and feel that they are well prepared for the next stage in their education.

'One parent commented: "Thanks to Tytherley School my daughter is a happy and confident child ready to accept the challenges of secondary school'."  '

Another parents commented : 'There is a strong community spirit and I feel that the children leave the school with a well-developed sense of responsibility to others'.

'Pupils show pleasure in their learning at school and are diligent in their work'.

'Pupils show a desire to learn and behave well...and are able to articulate strong levels of care and concern for others'. 

'Leaders are ambitious for pupils to 'believe, enjoy, grow and succeed', captured in their vision statement : 'branch by branch we reach for the sky'. '

'Staff enjoy working at the school and there is a skilled governing body whose members challenge leaders effectively'.

'Parents praise and value the pastoral care afford to pupils, particularly pupils who are in need of additional support'.

The Ofsted Letter has been posted below for your information and on the Ofsted website. The process was certainly a challenging one and the Ofsted framework sets a very high bar. Having had time to assess the report we feel it is a fair reflection of the school. We accept we still have some key areas to work on and will ensure that these are addressed within a realistic timeframe.

 The areas identified for further improvement were :


          Leaders and those responsible for governance should ensure that:

    • the school website includes an evaluation of the impact of the sports premium on pupils' participation and achievement
    • pupils' learning is deepened and broadened during the lessons when they show that they have grasped a skill, idea or concept quickly, particularly in phonics and mathematics.
