OFSTED have written to parents regarding the school's scheduled inspection. 

Here's an edited version of the full letter than can be read at the link above:

Great and Little Shelford CofE (Aided) Primary School: Ofsted’s interim assessment 110831

I am pleased to provide some important information about Great and Little Shelford CofE (Aided) Primary School.

As you may know, during its last inspection in February 2010, Ofsted inspectors judged your child’s school to be good. Schools which are performing well are now inspected less often than other schools. This usually means that good schools are inspected once in five years, whilst schools that require improvement will be inspected between 12 to 24 months after their last inspection.


I am pleased to inform you that our interim assessment shows that the school’s performance has been sustained and that we can defer its next full inspection.
As a result, the next full inspection will not take place any earlier than the summer term 2014 unless we receive information in the course of the coming year that causes us to inspect earlier.
