Welcome to Lancasterian


Dear parent or carer


Inspection of Lancasterian School by Ofsted


We have just told your child's school that we will inspect it on 03 July 2018. The lead inspector will be Sue Eastwood, HMI. We are writing to you because we would like to know what you think about the school. Please take a few minutes to read the leaflet which came with this letter. It explains why we inspect schools, and what happens during an inspection.


Your views about the school are important to us


If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at the school (including pupils on sick leave or who are temporarily excluded), you can tell us your views about the school by completing Ofsted's online survey, Parent View, at:


Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child's school, including the progress made by your child, the quality of teaching, how the school deals with bullying and poor behaviour. It also provides a free-text box for you to make additional comments, if you wish. The inspectors will use the online survey responses when inspecting your child's school. Written comments can also be sent to the school in a sealed envelope, marked confidential and addressed to the inspection team.


To register your views, you will need to provide your email address, which will be held securely. It will not be used for any purpose other than providing access to the online survey. Neither schools nor Ofsted will have access to any email addresses.


Please complete the online survey by noon on 03 July 2018 as this will give the inspection team more time to consider your views. However, we will consider all online responses that are completed during the inspection, although the free-text box facility will not be available after noon on 03 July 2018.

Manchester City Council (MCC) commissions Lancasterian to manage these services on behalf of MCC. As with the school, each of these services have a City wide remit. The School and the Services aim to treat all our pupils with the respect and dignity they deserve. There is also a deep commitment to working in partnership with families and carers so that the pupils achieve their potential in becoming valued citizens within our society.

I would welcome and encourage those accessing our website to consider making a visit to Lancasterian School and the Services occupying this campus, if you have not already done so. The internal £2.5 million refurbishment continues to inspire and delight those who work for and visit Lancasterian, not least because of the high level of education and enjoyment we continue to deliver in our School and through the services we manage.
