Townfield Primary's Involvement in the LA's Ofsted SEND Inspection
In October (2021), Wirral Local Authority (LA) SEND department underwent an Ofsted inspection. School received a visit from one of the Inspectors to talk about the SEND provision from the LA, and there were also opportunities to talk about what we do here, at Townfield Primary.
Even though the school was not under inspection, feedback from the Ofsted inspector was that since January 2020, SEND provision at TPS was absolutely fantastic. It's not very often that school receives praise for all the efforts and hard work put in, so this feedback was brilliant to hear. A huge thank you was sent to all parents who contributed, and of course, to our children who spoke so well about their experiences here at school, they have made everyone proud!
