We welcomed OFSTED to our school in June 2017.  During a one day inspection, OFSTED agreed with us that South Walney Junior is a good school with staff who are commited to providing an extremely safe environment where pupils can flourish, and a school with pupils who are extremely well behaved, polite and courteous. 

Our hard work in putting strategies in place to ensure reading, writing and maths outcomes are continually good and the wealth of diverse learning opportunities we provide for all children were also recognised as key strengths.  The care and support we offer to our vulnerable pupils was considered to be of the highest standard.

More recently, OFSTED visited our school on 15th October, 2020.  This was part of a national strategy to gather information on how England's education system is managing the return to full education for pupils following an extended break in formal schooling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Their findings are as stated in their letter below.
