The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) arranges and carries out the inspection of any school which wishes to be accredited by the Independent Schools Council (ISC).
The Independent Schools Inspectorate
The ISI inspects schools according to a standard framework for inspection which it has laid down for the purposes of ensuring that standards are maintained and that the school complies with relevant legal requirements. This framework has been agreed with the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and they have recognised the ISI as the body responsible for the regular inspection of schools in England which are affiliated to the ISC.
On the 12th and 13th of January 2017 ISI inspectors came in to check up on the progress made from the previous inspection in May 2016.

Head Teacher Update
I am pleased to announce, following work over the half term holiday in February 2017; that we are now compliant in all areas. The work required following the inspection was scheduled for the Christmas holidays when there were no children on site. The contractors were unable, at the last moment, to undertake the Electrical work which has now been signed off as compliant with the regulations.
The Health and Safety of all the pupils and staff at GPPS is paramount and we take the importance of complying with all regulations very seriously. To ensure that we are successful in future inspections, we will be regularly reviewing and updating all areas inspected during a compliance inspection.
This inspection was a compliance inspection and no judgments were made about the quality of the education at GPPS. My teaching team and I are focusing on ensuring that all the children attending GPPS have the best possible teaching and learning opportunities to continue to maintain high standards of education.
