Oldbury Academy Inspection report letter June 2016


Some really pleasing comments within the inspection report include:

“Although improvements have been taking place since the inspection in September 2015, the pace of improvement has increased rapidly since January 2016 when the Headteacher took up his post full-time. “


“There is a real sense of shared vision and purpose among staff and a clear energy and enthusiasm to improve the academy.”


“All areas for improvement from the last inspection are being addressed effectively.”


“More stable staffing and the recruitment of high quality, experienced staff are enabling leaders to implement and embed new strategies more effectively.”


“All Leaders are now more strategically involved in meeting academy improvement targets and addressing priorities.”


“External support is strong. Current leaders have been proactive in developing effective links with other schools, external organisations and individual experts, to support the academy in improving the accuracy of assessment, the quality of teaching and learning and leadership and management.”
