We are looking forward to welcoming an inspector from Ofsted into school on Tuesday 6 March 2018.

Ofsted 2017

The Ofsted inspection carried out in June 2017 highlighted that Humphrey Perkins School has a number of areas that require significant improvement. As the school’s new Headteacher, I am committed to leading the school out of special measures to assist the school in this journey, I have secured additional support from the Leicester Teaching School (LeTS) run by the highly successful and outstanding Rushey Mead Academy, who have many years’ experience of school improvement. As part of this support, Humphrey Perkins welcomes Mrs Bernadette Green, a former Leicester City Headteacher, into the role of Consultant Headteacher. She will be working with me to ensure rapid progress across all of the Ofsted priorities as outlined in the inspection report.  The school has already received its first DfE monitoring visit. During this visit, the senior advisor confirmed the new leadership of the school has the capacity to implement a raft of effective strategies to bring about positive change. An action plan is due to be submitted to Ofsted within the next 6 weeks and the school is currently working with the DfE to explore different multi-academy trust options.

I thank parents, students and staff for their ongoing support of Humphrey Perkins
