This means that the Inspection Team are so satisfied with the school’s performance , having judged Cranmore against all other schools in Northern Ireland, they have no recommendations for improvement for the school.
In a letter of congratulations received from Katrina Godfrey, the Director of Curriculum, Qualifications and Standards Branch at the Department of Education writes
“Your schools capacity for substantial self improvement is a successful example of the policy and vision set out in ‘Every School a GoodSchool.’ I have noted in particular the Inspector’s comments on the very good quality of the provision made for children with a wide range of additional learning needs; and the vision and very good strategic leadership of the Principal supported effectively by the Vice Principal and by the literacy, numeracy and special education needs co-ordinators. These are examples of the sort of good practice we are keen to disseminate and encourage among all schools.”
So the answer to the question ‘Is Cranmore a good school’ is no – it’s actually ‘a very good school!’
