4:30pm Wednesday 2nd January 2013 in News
A HEADTEACHER has hailed her school’s “outstanding progress” in its Ofsted results.
Brighton Aldridge Community Academy principal Phil Hogg said a transformation has taken place in behaviour and teaching at the former Falmer High School since the academy opened.
The academy received ‘good’ ratings on three of the four assessment criteria – quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils, as well as leadership and management.
Improved Since the academy opened two years ago results have improved by 86%, with 41% of students achieving five or more passes at A*-C grades including English and Maths this year.
Overall 93% of students achieved five or more passes at A*-C grades.
Mrs Hogg said: “We are on a journey to transform this school and the prospects for all of our students.
“We have discussed the recommendations with the inspectors and will apply them as we continue to improve and strive for the Good and then Outstanding ratings, which are our goals – and which we will achieve.
“We are committed to continuing what the inspectors themselves called our ‘outstanding progress’.
“It takes time for improvements to be embedded enabling ‘an outstanding judgement’ but we have clearly demonstrated that we are on that trajectory. I would like to thank our students, their parents and carers and the staff, who have been determined to make a difference.”
