Ofsted – September 2017

We are officially a GOOD school!

Ash Trees Academy has just achieved the second best Ofsted rating after a rigorous two-day inspection by an experienced HMI Ofsted inspector and her team.

The staff, pupils and parents worked closely together to showcase their knowledge and understanding of  all aspects of Ash Trees Academy, which included , leadership & management, teaching & learning, personal development & welfare, safeguarding, outcomes from pupils and  early years provision.

Here are some of our amazing headlines:-

  • School leaders, in partnership with the trust, have brought about improvement to the quality of teaching and learning since the previous inspection. As a result, outcomes for pupils have also improved.
  • Safeguarding pupils is a key priority for all members of staff. This ensures that a strong culture of safeguarding prevails across the school.
  • Teachers and teaching assistants work closely together to ensure that the complex needs of pupils are met both inside and outside the classroom.
  • The curriculum is carefully designed to meet individual pupils’ needs. Staff make regular checks on how well pupils are learning. These checks inform them of any changes they may need to make to planned work.
  • Pupils’ personal development and welfare are very clear priorities for all staff. Parents who spoke to the inspection team agreed with this view and shared their pleasure at the progress their children have made since coming to the school.
