Teaching is consistently good across the academy. There are examples of teaching that is outstanding. Teachers have benefited from effective and continuous monitoring and support by senior staff in order to develop teaching skills to a high level. This is why the achievement of pupils has risen rapidly since the academy was formed.
Following our Ofsted inspection in 2014 we are delighted to say that we are rated Good in all areas.
When Ofsted inspected the academy they found:
The academy is led with great skill by the Principal, supported by a strong team of senior managers and enthusiastic new middle managers. Together, they have succeeded in guiding marked improvement in all aspects of teaching and pupils’ achievement.
Pupils’ progress has accelerated since the academy was formed and is now good. Their achievement has been particularly notable in their learning of phonics (letters and the sounds they make), and in grammar, punctuation and spelling.
Teaching is good and sometimes better throughout the academy, including in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Teachers have good relationships with pupils, and high expectations for their social and academic achievements.
