We are disappointed by the outcome of the Chaucer School Ofsted inspection and do not feel that the report takes into account the full impact that the pandemic has had on our school and community.
In a monitoring visit in March 2020 Ofsted found the school to be taking effective action in order for the school to become good. Covid-19 then caused two years of significant disruption to education, and hardship within the community.
Our priority throughout this time has been the safety and welfare of everyone involved with our school and we are extremely proud of our students, staff and families for the resilience that they have shown.
We will continue on our journey for excellence together at Chaucer School, and in our mission to realise the life chances and dreams of all our students.
David Dennis (CEO, TSAT), Scott Burnside (Director of Secondary Education, TSAT) and Joanna Crewe (Headteacher, Chaucer School) – September 2022.
