After a long challenge and lengthy process, I am very proud to announce that Highgate Montessori has achieved an Ofsted rating of ‘Good Provider’.
Inspectors found that Highgate Montessori is a happy place to learn, where relationships are based on mutual respect and understanding and that friendship is an important part of school life.
There was a good and calm atmosphere throughout our setting on the day and I feel that the inspectors saw Highgate Montessori as it is on a daily basis.
The feedback was that the guardians know the children extremely well and pinpoint when extra support is needed. The Principle has high expectations of what children can do.
All staff have developed a love of reading at Highgate Montessori. Pupils read often and can confidently talk about the books they enjoy.
Parents and carers are complimentary about the school. One parent wrote, ‘This really is a lovely school, with a family feel, who clearly put the children at the heart of what they do.’
I am really pleased that all the staff and children’s hard work has been recognised. This is a good outcome that we can be proud of.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff and volunteers who have taken Highgate Montessori on this exciting journey and I look forward to the coming months and years as we further develop our wonderful school together.
