Green Gates is a “Good” School
Green Gates Academy was judged overall to be within the category of “Good” (2) in all areas of the inspection framework, in a recent Ofsted inspection which took place on 8/9th October 2019.
Below are some findings from the report:
What is it like to attend this school? “Pupils told inspectors that they really enjoy coming to school. Pupils’ happy smiles as they skipped down the school path at the start of the day supported this view. Staff and leaders are ambitious for pupils. The school mantra, that pupils need to be the very best they can be, is shared by staff. Pupils recognise that staff care for them.”
The school curriculum is based securely on the national curriculum. Staff understand pupils’ needs well and are expert at making sure the challenging curriculum is adapted to meet the needs of all pupils.”
Mathematics is now carefully planned so that pupils build on the knowledge learned in each unit taught. This enables pupils to know and remember important information more effectively.”
Reading is given a high priority in the school. Leaders’ goal is that all pupils will learn to read.”
Since the previous inspection, leaders have revolutionised a number of elements of the curriculum. They have combined high expectations for pupils with a curriculum that builds pupils’ knowledge and skills. Pupils’ achievement has improved significantly as a result.”
“Leaders have made sure the school is a safe environment for pupils. They are clear about the challenges pupils meet each day within the community. They work closely with other agencies to keep pupils safe.”
We are delighted that Green Gates Academy is an Ofsted rated “Good School”
We would like to thank all of our parents and cares for their continued support.
