OFSTED JUDGES THIRD LEEDS CO-OPERATIVE PRIMARY ACADEMY TO BE GOOD

OFSTED JUDGES THIRD LEEDS CO-OPERATIVE PRIMARY ACADEMY TO BE GOOD

Ofsted inspectors have now judged three Co-operative primary academies in East Leeds to be good.

 

The latest to receive the thumbs up from inspectors is Oakwood Primary Academy in Harehills where Ofsted found the headteacher, governors and key leaders to be highly ambitious for all pupils.

 

The inspectors, who visited the school on 3 and 4 June, recognised the support received from the Co-operative Academies Trust which supports five schools – four primaries and one secondary in Leeds.  The other three primaries are Brownhill, at Burmantofts, Woodlands and the recently opened Nightingale, both at Harehills.

 

Inspectors gave particular praise to the big difference the school was having on those pupils with low starting points. “Almost all pupils start school with skills below those typical for their age, and many with skills well below those expected. The vast majority make good progress and achieve well.”

 

The work of the Headteacher, Rebecca Ingram, and her senior leadership team was described as ambitious and they have created a cohesive and supportive team of teachers and support staff.

 

Frank Norris, Director of the Co-operative Academies Trust, said: “Oakwood is the third of our primary academies in East Leeds to be inspected and I am delighted that they have all been judged to be good.

 

“I am very proud of what the Co-operative Academies Trust is doing to deliver the highest standards of education based on co-operative values and principles and we are committed to creating an outstanding learning community where all pupils achieve their maximum potential.”

 

The Co-operative Group is one of the UK’s leading retail and financial services businesses, which is owned and controlled by its eight million customer members.
