A Successful Visit From Ofsted
“IN AN INCREASING NUMBER OF LESSONS TEACHING IS OUTSTANDING”
Stewards Academy has been recognised by Ofsted Inspectors as a good school with many examples of outstanding practice, following an Inspection in June. Students who attend Stewards achieve well and make good progress. Inspectors were very impressed by the quality of teaching and by the behaviour and safety of pupils which was graded outstanding.
Inspectors reported: “The attitude and behaviour of students are exemplary because of the great importance the Academy places on their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Working with their teachers, they have created an exceptionally safe, caring and supportive community of which they are very proud to belong.”
The Inspectors spoke to very many students in lessons, in meetings and around the school. They were extremely impressed. Stewards students are described as; “articulate, caring and well-adjusted young people who can offer much to British Society”.
Headteacher Rhonda Murthar said, “In education we are constantly under the spotlight to improve examination results. At Stewards we have high expectations for our students who achieve very well and make very good progress. Our results are improving year on year due to the high quality of teaching and exceptional dedication of all staff. More than results however, what is recognised in this report is the community of Stewards – the wealth of opportunities, the enjoyment of learning due to inspirational teaching and the development of the whole person. All who are associated with Stewards – students, staff, parents and governors will see in this report the richness of education we offer here and feel privileged to be a part of a very special place.”
