Latest News From Great Wakering Primary Academy - November 2019

Welcome to our website - we update this site regularly and would welcome your feedback.    

Dear Parents/Carers,

As you are aware we had a Section 8 Ofsted Inspection on the 3rd and 4th of October 2019.  The purpose of a Section 8 Inspection is to confirm whether the school remains good and does not result in individual graded judgements or change the overall effectiveness grade of the school.

I am now delighted to be able to share the inspection report with parents and carers and confirm the judgement that we continue to be a good school.

The inspection process was very detailed and feedback received over the two-day inspection was highly positive and reflected the hard work and commitment undertaken by all in the school community. 

We are very proud of our achievements as a school and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who was involved in the inspection; staff, trustees, pupils and parents alike.

Mrs Jennifer Burdett

Head of School
