Ofsted Information

This academy is a GOOD school. Ofsted states: “This school continues to be good. You and your leadership team have maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.”

Ofsted adds: “Pupils and staff know that you are building a sense of belonging and mutually respectful, inclusive relationships and are positive about this. The staff survey shows that the overwhelming majority of staff believe the school has improved since the last inspection and are proud to work there. They believe it is safe, well managed and well led.

The work we are doing at HLAW has the wellbeing, academic progress and future success of our students at its core and therefore we were particularly proud of the following statements from Ofsted: “Leaders ensure a strong culture of safeguarding which prioritises the safety of pupils. As a result, pupils feel safe and know how to keep themselves safe, both in the local area and online. Your behaviour logs and incident reports agree with pupils’ view that bullying and prejudicial behaviour is rare in the school and is dealt with effectively.

"Teachers skilfully develop pupils’ understanding by asking probing questions. As a result, pupils deepen their understanding of challenging concepts…..samples of most-able pupils’ work showed extended writing and deeper analysis in response to challenging teacher comments.”

We know that there are always areas in which we can improve but we are thrilled that Ofsted have endorsed our approach, recognised our successes, confirmed that we are on the right trajectory to make our academy Outstanding. This has given us the confidence to continue to strive hard in all these areas because the work we do is having an impact for our young people and in our community.

Please do read the full letter below and we looking forward to continuing to build our community with you for the next four years and beyond.

Josh Deery, Principal
