Glowing report for March school
Pupils and staff at the Neale Wade Academy are celebrating after a glowing Ofsted report.
Inspectors highlight improving standards and aspirations at the March school during a visit in November last year.
The report states that predictions for the 2016 results show overall standards are improving and gaps between disadvantaged and other pupils are narrowing.
But the team at the Wimblington Road school has been advised to develop governors’ understanding and ensure progress leaders use a wide range of information.
Principal Jason Wing is thrilled with the report.
He said: “It is really nice to get the recognition for the progress and it is important to remember that everyone plays their part.
“We are delighted with the report but we have got to keep working hard.”
The report praises the leadership team for their conviction that all pupils will achieve their full academic and personal potential.
Strengths for the school include performance targets, which included the expected contribution to be made to improving a pupil’s achievement, along with carefully thought out teaching.
The report states: “Aspirations for all pupils are high. Leaders and teachers ensure pupils understand what options they have for their future education and careers.
“Where pupils need extra support, teachers ‘go the extra mile’ to help them achieve their goals.”
