Dear Mr Hobbs

Short inspection of The Nottingham Emmanuel School

Following my visit to the school on 15 March 2016 with Ellenor Beighton, Ofsted
Inspector, I write on behalf of Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Education, Children's
Services and Skills to report the inspection findings. The visit was the first short
inspection carried out since the predecessor school was judged to be good in
October 2012.

This school continues to be good.

You have maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last
section 5 inspection. The priorities for improvement identified during the section 8
no formal designation monitoring inspection, conducted in September 2015, have
also been effectively addressed. You are determined that the distinctive culture of
this school is preserved. You are equally determined to ensure that all pupils make
the progress of which they are capable. Members of staff, leaders and governors
told inspectors that your leadership is making a difference. All are of the same view:
`Our ethos empowers all pupils to achieve as they should.'

The governing body is a strength of the school. The chair of the governing body is,
with determination and true commitment, working closely with you to ensure that
the school is a solidly good school. A review of governance has taken place and the
recommendations from this have been acted on. There is a clear committee
structure and roles and responsibilities are well understood. Governors have a range
of appropriate skills and experiences and are able to challenge leaders, particularly
when monitoring the progress that pupils are making. The work of governors has
had a positive impact. Their decisions and actions have made a difference. For
