Ofsted Report


Hadlow Primary School were inspected under the new Ofsted framework on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd October 2019. This was a Section 8 Inspection for schools considered, by Ofsted, to be good. During the visit, the inspector spent a lot of time in the classrooms, meeting children, meeting with staff and delving deeper into particular subjects. All primary schools now have reading and maths closely scrutinised along with safeguarding. We also had our geography provision looked at in detail. We were very pleased with the outcome of the inspection and, as expected, we remain a very good school. Please take time to read the report – which highlights the many strengths of Hadlow Primary School.
