We are delighted that inspectors have recognised the progress the Academy has made in the last 2 years and the very significant improvements since the previous inspection in 2018.
Ofsted agree with us where the many strengths of the Academy are, and we agree with inspectors on where the areas for improvement are in our journey towards being consistently good and better in all areas.
Some highlights from the report are:
- pupils are happy to come to school and feel safe
- [pupils] enjoy a good standard of pastoral care
- senior leaders have high expectations for both pupils and staff
- warm relationships between teachers and pupils mean that pupils behave well [in lessons]
- effective training to improve teachers’ skills [and have] established a culture of staff training
- teachers explain ideas well and pupils learn well.
- students do well in the sixth form and personal development is particularly strong
Ofsted have graded 4 of the 5 areas as GOOD.
|Leadership & Management||Requires Improvement||Leadership & Management||Good|
|Teaching Learning & Assessment||Requires Improvement||Quality of Education||Good|
|Outcomes for Pupils||Requires Improvement|
|Behaviour and Welfare||Requires Improvement||Behaviour & Attitudes||Requires Improvement|
|Sixth Form||Requires Improvement||Sixth Form||Good|
We are disappointed with inspectors’ view that because behaviour and attitudes outside of lessons at the Academy require improvement, then the overall grade for this area is Requires Improvement (despite describing behaviour in class, the way the Academy deals with bullying, and overall attendance as good or very effective). This grade for behaviour and attitudes also means that the overall grade for the Academy is ‘Requires Improvement’ at this time.
Although we have been waiting for some time for the publication of the inspection report we have wasted no time in addressing the areas for improvement that were discussed at the time. Since the inspection in April we have:
- Reviewed our Behaviour for Learning Policy and undertaken staff training on behaviour management
- Used assemblies and form time to clarify our behaviour expectations with our students
- Expanded our Pastoral team so that all year groups have a non-teaching Head of Year and Associate Head of Year. We also appointed two Pastoral Intervention Leaders to the team.
As you read the full report we are sure you will see the many reasons to congratulate staff on their work to deliver improvements in the Academy for the benefit of your children as well as agreeing with inspectors’ findings on where we should focus our efforts on improving the Academy further.
