Our most recent Ofsted was conducted on 1st March 2017. The inspector was able to report that the school continues to be good. She wrote to Mrs Friar in her report, "Since your appointment as headteacher in September 2016, the school has been given a renewed vigour and energy so that the school’s motto, ‘Anything is possible’, is demonstrated throughout the school. You have swiftly identified areas where the school could improve and set about putting changes in place to do this."
Mrs Friar has commented, "I am incredibly proud to be the Head Teacher of Creeting school. I am surrounded by a dedicated team of staff who have worked extremely hard since September to rise to every challenge set and I'm pleased to see that their contributions and support have been recognised in the report."
