Letter from the Chair of Governors


The Ofsted Inspection of King’s Gate Primary School

Good afternoon Parents/Carers, 


It is with great pleasure that we can now inform you of the results of our recent Ofsted Inspection which took place on 7th  & 8th  November 2023.


The inspectors that visited our school carried out their inspection over the two days, which included deep dives into various subjects, lesson visits, discussions with staff/pupils, meetings with school leaders and scrutiny of work undertaken by children. They met with the Executive Head Teacher, Head of School, Subject Leads, members of the governing body, other external agents, spoke with parents, and reviewed documentation provided by the school. More of what inspectors looked at can be found within the official report. 


We are delighted to inform you that the inspectors concluded that King’s Gate Primary School is GOOD in all areas (Quality of Education, Behaviour and Attitudes, Personal Development, Leadership and Management and Early Years Provision), resulting in an Overall Effectiveness of GOOD for the School. 


The Board of Governors consider this an excellent achievement for the School and are exceptionally proud of all staff and pupils for their efforts during this inspection, the time leading up to the inspection, and the ongoing performance of the School. 


The report is extremely positive, and although there have been some areas highlighted for improvement, School Leaders had already identified (and have been working to improve these areas) which clearly demonstrates the strong leadership of the School. All staff at King’s Gate are committed to implement and review strategies which will deal with the areas raised by the Ofsted inspection. 


Should you have any queries or concerns, we would urge you to contact the School who will then be able to direct you to the relevant person, to discuss any matters further.


Yours sincerely,


Mrs Caroline Baynes – Chair of Governors
