Stockport Academy's Ofsted Report Is GOOD News
/ Categories: News
Stockport Academy ‘is a good school’. This was the judgement of Ofsted inspectors who visited the Cheadle Heath school earlier this month.
Following their short inspection, the inspectors gave the academy a very positive report and noticed that the academy has made strong progress in a number of areas since they last visited in March 2015.
Overall, the inspectors were impressed with what they saw and praised the action the school has taken to drive improvement over the past couple of years. The inspectors were particularly pleased to see that:
· ‘Pupils make good progress at Key Stage 4’;
· Pupils are making strong progress in Maths;
· ‘Staff are proud to be part of the school community’ and ‘are highly motivated because they feel valued’;
· ‘Relationships between pupils and teachers are typically strong and pupils trust teachers to help them improve their work’;
· ‘Parents and carers are happy with the school and feel that their children are safe and well looked after’;
· ‘Governance is strong’.
Principal of Stockport Academy Mrs McCann said: “Everyone across the academy is delighted with this report which recognises the significant progress we have made in recent years.
“The inspectors have given us a hugely encouraging report in which they have noticed the significant steps forward we have taken in pupil achievement, behaviour and attendance. These improvements are down to the hard work and dedication of our fantastic staff who work tirelessly for our pupils. This report is testament to all our staff who, as the inspectors rightly said, are so valued by our school community.
"As a school, we are not content to sit on our laurels and spurred on by this report, we will continue to drive improvement and become the “Outstanding” school we know we can be."
