Crosshall Infant School impress Ofsted
CROSSHALL Infant School will no longer be inspected by Ofsted after an impressive interim assessment.
SUCCESS STORY: Crosshall Infant School in St Neots will no longer need Ofsted inspectors to visit after impressing the education watchdog at an interim assessment.
The school was judged to be outstanding by Oftsted in 2007 and again impressed at its recent assessment with its “outstanding performance, care and education”.
The inspectorate looked at pupils’ academic performance, attendance, inspection visits carried out by Ofsted since the last routine inspection, complaints about the school by parents or carers and any other significant concerns brought to their attention. And Crosshall shined through.
Under the new 2011 Education Bill schools which maintain high standards will no longer be visited by Ofsted inspectors. The rules will come into force from January 2012.

Headteacher Deborah James told The Hunts Post that the school’s academy status, which it gained last year, gives it the power to regulate its own performance with Ofsted using data from the school to keep records of how it is performing.
