Jubilee Academy Mossley in Walsall has been praised for its significant improvements and inclusive culture which led to a rating of ‘Good’ from Ofsted inspectors last month.
Jubilee Academy Mossley, which is sponsored by Academy Transformation Trust, was graded ‘Good’ in all categories – the second highest mark possible. During the inspection it was applauded for the “good progress” pupils are making in all areas and the “high expectations” teachers have for pupil’s work and behaviour.
In particular, inspectors acknowledged the significant work being done to engage with parents and carers, saying they are “welcomed as partners in their children’s learning”.
The report also commended the leadership team for “monitoring teaching and learning regularly” and praised the Principal and Vice Principal for the work they have been doing to “establish [the] priorities for improvement”.
The excellent support offered by the wider team was also recognised, stating Governors “hold leaders to account for pupils’ achievements” and Academy Transformation Trust has established “high expectations of the academy through policies and procedures which support continued improvement”.
Jennie Westley, Principal said: “We are delighted with this positive report which reflects the hard work by all our staff, pupils, our sponsor and the wider academy community. Ofsted have recognised the excellent teaching and learning we offer at Jubilee Academy but also the exciting and transformational journey we are all on together.”
Following on from above national Key Stage 2 results last year, work by Jubilee’s current Year 6 pupils now shows “rapid improvement in attainment and progress for all groups of pupils, and this reflects improvements across the whole age range”. Alongside this, the quality of the academy’s curriculum was acknowledged and the “exciting topics …help pupils to develop their skills very effectively”.
The academy was also congratulated for having well behaved children and for keeping them safe and secure. Inspectors especially noted the “warm and supportive relationships” staff have developed with pupils which is helping them make good progress.
Ian Cleland, Chief Executive Officer of Academy Transformation Trust commented: “I am very pleased that the report reflects the fantastic work Jennie and her team are doing to provide pupils with the first class education they deserve. The report makes excellent reading and reflects many of the very positive aspects of the work and achievements of the academy”.Back to News
