A SCHOOL has received a glowing review in its most recent Ofsted report.

Seahaven Academy in Newhaven received “good” in every aspect of its performance from Ofsted following an inspection in November.

The authority said pupils benefit from a “well planned” and “aspirational” curriculum and are “confident about their future”.

Ofsted inspectors also praised how supportive the relationship between teachers and pupils is and noted the “high expectations” for all pupils.

The Ofsted criteria is in four categories - quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development and leadership and management.

Sarah Pringle, principal at Seahaven Academy, said: “It is wonderful to receive such positive feedback from the inspectors and, in particular, that they recognise the pride and commitment shown by our staff and students towards their teaching and learning.

“I am pleased that the inspectors were able to experience for themselves the welcoming and ambitious environment we have fostered here at the academy.

“I know all of us are looking forward to building on the comments in this report for the future.”

The school is part of United Learning which is an umbrella group of schools around the country.

Dame Sally Coates, Director of Secondary Academies at United Learning, said: “The inspectors’ report contains strong endorsements of the staff and students’ approach to their education and their enthusiasm for their school.

“This is particularly encouraging given the circumstances of the past two years and the inspectors are clear that, throughout this time, the school has retained its ambition for every student and its aspirations for their success.

“It is vital that this work continues at pace throughout this academic year and beyond so that we can ultimately minimise the impact that the Pandemic has on this generation of young people.”
