An AET primary academy on Teesside had leapt from 'requires improvement' to 'outstanding' in just under two years.
In their latest inspection report on North Ormesby Primary Academy, Ofsted praises Mrs Christine Kemp-Hall's leadership as Headteacher as 'inspirational.' The quality of leadership and management, the behaviour and safety of the pupils, the quality of teaching, the achievement of the pupils and the early years provision are all rated 'outstanding.' The inspection team uses the word 'outstanding' 39 times in the report.
All leaders, including the governors, have created a culture where 'everyone loves to learn.' Children are making rapid progress and standards have risen dramatically since the last inspection in 2013, especially in reading. The use of Information and communication technology is 'exceptional' and the children's skills in this area are 'outstanding' as a result.
It has been an excellent year for the Middlesbrough primary which gained the Achievement for All Quality Mark Award, as well as an international award for the number of pupils completing homework online.
Earlier this spring Maltings Academy in Essex rose from 'good' to 'outstanding.'
