Inspection of Stowing Church of England Primary School, Stowting, Ashford, Kent, TN25 6BE
I am writing to you following my recent visit to let you know what I think about your school. Thank you for your help in talking to me about your work.
I think your school is an exceptionally good school which is always trying to be even better. It provides you with an excellent education. I saw for myself, you told me and your parents told me, that everyone in your school takes very good care of you and you get on very well with each other. I could see how much you enjoy coming to school, and that the teachers make lessons lively and interesting so that you can learn more easily. You told me that you feel safe and that there is always someone to talk to if you have a problem. Your school council has helped to bring about changes. The school prepares you extremely well for the next stage of your education.
You show enthusiasm, behave very well and work hard in lessons and, as a result, do outstandingly well, especially in the tests you take in your last year at the school. Your parents are very happy with all the school provides for you. Your headteacher is a first-rate leader and knows what to do to make the school even better. I could not find many things that the school needs to make it better but I have asked the headteacher and governors to help teachers to make better checks on the areas for which they have added responsibilities. You can help too by continuing to work hard and do your very best.
May I wish you all the very best for the future.
Her Majesty’s Inspector
