Outcome of Short OfSTED Inspection 2017
This school continues to be good.
The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and your leadership team act with integrity, have an accurate evaluation of the school and act to improve aspects where performance is not as strong.
The school is part of a multi-academy trust which has brought much-needed stability to the running of the school. Governors and staff speak positively about the opportunities provided to the school, which include moderation of pupils’ learning and the collaborative nature of working relationships. An example is the role that coordinators of specific areas of school performance have across all schools. The school has benefited from this arrangement while also maintaining the features which makes Brayford Academy unique in the community that is serves.
You give an accurate and honest account of the school. You know where its strengths and areas for improvement lie and have demonstrated how the actions taken have resulted in positive changes. You, other leaders and governors work as a cohesive team and regularly share findings from monitoring so that all know how the school is performing.
