I have great pleasure in sharing with you the report from our recent ‘ungraded’ Ofsted Inspection on 17th and 18th May 2023 - please see the document below.  Southwood School has been judged as Good.  The report is a lovely recognition of the fantastic work that every member of staff delivers on a daily basis, as well as recognising the conscientious efforts of all our pupils.  As headteacher, I am very fortunate to work with such brilliant, dedicated staff and to be able to support such a wonderful group of children.  The report clearly shows how we carefully balance the academic development of our pupils with the additional experiences that we offer, including out of school activities and our pastoral care in school and for our families. 

Please read the report in full, and be reassured that we are already addressing the two small areas of development that were included. 

With warmest wishes,

Mrs Mathews
