Edale Primary School is bouncing back from being put in 'special measures' in February 2017.
Last year, we appointed a new headteacher, Mrs Lees, who recently led Castleton Primary to a 'good' rating by Ofsted We are are very pleased with the changes and progress Mrs Lees has already made during her time with us so far.
Our aim is to be back to our usual 'good' rating by July 2018. We are on target for this, as can be seen in the recent reports from Ofsted, who have visited again in October and February to review our progress, and the Diocese. The Diocese (Church School) inspection took place in December 2017 and the inspectors were impressed enough to make the very rare decision to rate the school as 'good'. It is very unusual for a school to turn around so quickly and it is hugely rewarding to have their recognition of this. Well done everyone for all their work in getting these excellent reports and feedback from Ofsted and the Diocese!
