Fake Headteacher: I want my school to be outstanding – Newsletter No.18

Dear Staff,

I haven’t written a newsletter for some time as I have spent a long time away with academy duties. I trust the school has been operating effectively in my absence.

As you know, I really want my school to get at least a good grading from ofsted. However, to impress the academy, I am pushing for an outstanding grade this year. So, I have included content from my own personal action plan to share with you.

However, I think I have a virus on my computer as a lot of the words keep disappearing. I hope you can still make sense of it. Only the key words in each sentence appear.
