About our work – Safeguarding
Thank you so much for your help, support and knowledge over the last few months. I knew Ofsted was on  the way... little did. I know how closely on your heels they followed! I am so grateful for the advice you gave and the actions you stipulated. I actioned all points raised quickly... and thank goodness for that! You gave me the confidence to argue the points raised by the inspector as I felt secure in the knowledge you  had taken the time to explain. As you know, we came through with flying colours.
Again, thank you... long live safeguarding audits!!

About our work – Governance
At Sticklepath Community School in Barnstaple, we were a TISP A school for 4 terms, having been given an Ofsted inadequate grade and a notice to improve in March 2012. The governing body, with the support of  Governor Services, carried out a Governance review and the development work that emerged from this has led to the governors having a much greater understanding of their strategic role as critical friend and they now robustly hold the school leaders – and themselves – to account. The school was graded good by Ofsted in July 2013.  (Headteacher, Sticklepath Community School)
