As you are aware, the Academy was inspected by Ofsted on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.
I would like to thank all of the parents who gave their views via the Parent View App, and all of the staff and students who took part in the inspection.
As with all Ofsted inspections there is a period of time where the report is checked and validated by Ofsted themselves. During this time we are not allowed to discuss the outcome of the report, which in very rare circumstances could be subject to change. I would like to reassure parents and carers that this is the case with all Ofsted inspections, so no-one should be alarmed by this short delay in sharing the findings of the inspection.
I can say that during the inspection Ofsted inspectors recognised the progress that the Academy has made. I will share the report with you as soon as it is published, which is likely to be in the next few weeks.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all students and families a restful half-term holiday – enjoy the sunshine!
Mr D Bird
