HMI Monitoring Visit
On the 14 March, the academy
received a monitoring visit
from Ofsted. The purpose of
the visit was to ensure that
we are making progress
in our improvement areas
from the last inspection
in December 2016. We are
pleased to be able to share
with you that the visit went
very well. The Inspector, Mr
Daniel Gee, commented and
acknowledged that:
Look out for

will take you to

information online
or on our website.
ATT Pupil Awards 2017
In December, we were delighted to
discover that three of our students
had received an award as part of
the Trust’s Annual Pupil Awards
hosted in Birmingham. Abbie Aleksic
(Creativity), Adam Cook (Bravery) and
Maisha Ali (Transformational Progress)
were chosen as winners in these
categories, beating off nominees from
19 other schools. Abbie is a talented
musician and singer and she was
invited to perform one her own musical
compilations as part of the ceremony.

• ‘Senior leaders, governors and the Trust are
taking effective action to tackle the areas
requiring improvement identified at the last
section 5 inspection in order for the school to
become good’.
• ‘Pupils’ outcomes have improved significantly.
In 2017, pupils’overall progress at the end of key
stage 4 was in line with the national average’
• ‘Leaders have acted effectively to bring about
improvements in the progress of pupils with
special educational needs (SEN) and/or
disabilities.’
• ‘Leaders are accurate in their assessment of the
strengths and weaknesses of teaching and their
records show that the overall quality of
teaching is continuing to improve’.
The monitoring
visit also left
us with some
areas to further
develop and we
will keep you
updated later this
term, outlining
the actions we
are putting in
place to support
our ongoing
improvement.
