Dear Iona community,

Thank you very much for joining in the celebration of International Women’s Day last Friday! 

Everyone loved having a waffle after school as a treat and thanks to your support we have managed to buy two beautiful books about great women in history for classes 3/4 and 5/6. We have also donated £77 to the Malala Fund (https://www.malala.org/), which does an amazing work bringing education to girls all over the world.

There will be some cakes for sale today at the end of the day for Red Nose day, treat yourself today too for another good cause! 

With best wishes,

The Iona School

24. January 2019 · Comments Off on Iona School Ofsted Report 2018 now published · Categories: Steiner education

On behalf of the management team at The Iona School, we wanted to make you aware of the outcomes from a recent Ofsted inspection which took place on 4 – 6 December 2018.

We are disappointed with the overall judgement of ‘Requires Improvement’. However, we acknowledge the important role of formal inspections and welcome the honest and informed feedback which will be used to drive our school’s improvement.

The majority of areas where improvement is required relate to the way in which the school evidences good work and we are already taking steps to address this.

However, the Iona School is pleased that the “personal development, behaviour and welfare” of its pupils has been highlighted as “good”.

The Iona School is confident of meeting the required Ofsted standards for monitoring pupil progress. A substantial amount of work has been completed in this area since the inspection.

The full results of the inspection can be accessed here: IONA SCHOOL OFSTED REPORT 2018. We urge you to read through the entire report.

Should you have any questions or concerns please contact Dominique Allen, Communications Manager : 0115 9415295 or email: dominique@theionaschool.org.uk
