Good marks for an Ormiston Bushfield Academy
Posted: 18 May 2016
Their inspections highlighted improvements across the board, attributed in part to leadership of Principal Dennis Kirwan who took up the role in September 2014.
The Ofsted inspectors recognised improvements in teaching standards since the last inspection in 2012, noting that staff at the academy go that extra mile to inspire and motivate their students.
Mr Kirwan said he was now aiming for an 'outstanding' grade. He said: "We’re very proud of the results from the inspection. Both our teaching staff and our students are committed to making the academy an environment in which our students can excel. It’s fantastic that our efforts have been recognised by Ofsted in this way."
In a recent letter from the Tim Coulson, Regional Schools Commissioner, East of England, North East he wrote: "I was extremely pleased to read the Ofsted short inspection report and to see that you have maintained your good rating. The report highlights that the overall quality of teaching has improved and the pupils at risk of underachievement are well supported. It is excellent to read that the relationship between staff and pupils is positive and that pupils’ behaviour is good in lessons and around the school. Congratulations on such a positive report."
