The official report is now available.
As you will be aware, the Academy was inspected under a Section 8 short inspection on 3 October 2017. The short inspection seeks to answer two key questions: “Does the Academy continue to be ‘Good’?” and “Is Safeguarding still effective?,” both of which were answered positively.
The positivity that runs throughout is impressive; this is by far the most complimentary Section 8 letter I have read. The Inspection Team recognised the improvement since the previous ‘Good’ inspection in 2013 and were full of praise for the students, the staff and the Academy overall.
The letter (please see below) is written to me but of course, it is actually directed at each and every member of the Academy community. This recognition is for all of us.
Receiving this feedback from Ofsted is a heart-warming moment. There is a passage in the letter of which I am particularly proud:
“Pupils are proud of their school …They are polite and respectful, wear their uniform with pride and treat each other with kindness. “
I am incredibly fortunate to lead such a committed and talented group of colleagues and students, I take this opportunity to thank you as parents and carers for your continued support.
