Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community



Pupils’ progress from their starting points has improved rapidly and is now good, including the progress of disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities.
Ofsted, 2016

Following our Ofsted inspection in September 2016, we are delighted to say that the academy was judged to be a 'Good' school!

When Ofsted inspected the Academy they found:

  • The specialist resource base provides exceptionally well for its pupils. Consequently, learning needs are met and pupils make strong progress. The level of challenge in lessons is consistently high, including for those identified as the most able.
  • In the early years, standards continue to rise steeply and provision is good. Children settle into routines quickly and grasp every opportunity to learn. The curriculum on offer is impressive.
  • Safeguarding is effective. A clear culture of safeguarding practice prevails across the school.
  • Pupils’ behaviour is good. Pupils’ attitudes to learning are positive. Pupils enjoy the challenges set for them. Pupils feel safe and they say they enjoy school.
  • Parents are very positive about the school and the education provided for their children. They recognise the substantial improvements made since the school opened.

We are delighted with this outcome and continue to work hard to progress our academy on its journey to Outstanding.
