Ofsted – December 2018
Short inspection of Lickey Hills Primary School and Nursery -11 December 2018 – Letter on behalf of Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education, Children’s Services and Skills to report the inspection findings. The visit was the first short inspection carried out since the school was judged to be good in November 2014. This school continues to be good. The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.
This is my second Ofsted inspection as the Headteacher of LHPSN and I am delighted to share the report with you which reflects the wonderful ethos, achievements and successes of the whole school community. Here are some highlights from LHPSN’s Ofsted report (December 2018) which recognises and celebrates:
