School Letters

As you will be aware, we had our first Ofsted Inspection, as an Academy on the 16th and 17th January 2018. We are now in a position to share the findings of the Inspection. St Philip Howard Catholic Voluntary Academy has been on a journey since being placed in to an Ofsted category – serious weakness in November 2014. We are delighted that Ofsted have now taken our school out of category and judged it to be Grade 3 – Requires Improvement.

I am pleased to announce that St Philip Howard Catholic Voluntary Academy has been successful in its bid for places at this summer’s Study Camp to China, organised and sponsored by UCL’s Institute of Education in London and Hanban (the Chinese Education authority). This is the first time St Philip Howard will embark on this once in a lifetime opportunity, but will be the 12th year that this event has taken place.

We have just told your child’s school that we will inspect it on 16 January 2018. The lead inspector will be Jayne Ashman, HMI. We are writing to you because we would like to know what you think about the school. Please take a few minutes to read the leaflet which came with this letter. It explains why we inspect schools, and what happens during an inspection.

As you may be aware, since September 2017 all homework set has been visible to pupils on the school’s Virtual Learning Environment (http://sph.myvle.co.uk). However, homework has still been recorded in your child’s planner. All staff have been uploading homework to the VLE and your child has had the option to either complete the work in a written format or complete it electronically on the VLE.
