Ofsted has judged the overall effectiveness of the Mablethorpe Primary Academy, sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT), to be ‘good.’
Inspectors scrutinised records and documentation, observed lessons and met with pupils, staff and parents to get their views.
The inspection is an independent assessment of the effectiveness of the academy which includes: the achievement of pupils, the quality of teaching, the behaviour and safety of pupils and the quality of leadership and management.
The Academy was judged to be ‘good’ across all four areas however inspectors did make particular note of the fact that they found progress, achievement, leadership and the quality of teaching to be outstanding in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
The inspectors praised the staff at the Academy saying that ‘most teaching is consistently good or better’ and that ‘teachers show great skill in judging the speed and level of their teaching to sustain the interest of pupils.’
Catherine Teale, Principal, said: “I am delighted with this very positive inspection report.
“It was a pleasure to read that parents who spoke to the Ofsted inspectors ‘were positive about teaching and their children’s progress’ and that the inspectors found that our pupils ‘take a pride in their Academy, are ‘polite, friendly and courteous’, are ‘attentive, work hard and want to succeed’ and ‘have good attitudes to learning.’
“We set high expectations at the Academy and we are extremely pleased Ofsted recognises we are providing a good level of education for pupils.”
