I am sure you would agree that this is a FANTASTIC achievement for the school! This is particularly exceptional as the children have performed to an outstanding level in a test situation based on a very challenging skill based revised National Curriculum. I would like to extend my deepest thanks and gratitude to all the staff at Otford who show a very high level of dedication to the children. We will continue to ensure that the teaching and learning at Otford is inspiring, supporting children to excel in every year group.



The School Governors would like to invite you to a meeting on evening of the 30th January 2017,- further information regarding exact timings to follow. Your questionnaires have been analysed and the Governing Body would like to share these results with you. It would be wonderful if as many parents as possible could attend- we thank you in advance for saving this date in your diaries.
