Sir Alec Reed celebrates Ofsted inspection
Further to the Ofsted inspection of the Academy in June, we are delighted to inform you that the Ofsted report was officially published last week. The report is highly complimentary of the Academy’s work. Inspectors have stated that the Academy shows ‘the greatest care for all pupils in the school’. ‘Pupils told inspectors about the sense of togetherness’ and one pupil said, ‘teachers make sure no one is left behind’. We are delighted that Ofsted have confirmed that Alec Reed Academy is a ‘Good’ and continually improving school. The full Ofsted report is now available on our website.
In celebration of the report, a Truly Scrumptious Friday celebration of success was held on Friday 6th July. All pupils received an edible treat from the restaurant and we were delighted that Sir Alec Reed was able to join members of staff for further celebrations later in the day. In his address to staff members, Sir Alec reminded us that in the first few years after the Academy was established ‘Ofsted inspections were not always as positive as this’! Sir Alec described the pride he feels in the Academy, all of its achievements and significant success.
