We had our first Ofsted inspection which took place on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th April.
As this was our first inspection since opening, it was very thorough and we had two HMI (her majesty’s inspectors) and one shadow HMI in school with us for two full days!
The inspection team took the time to get a real sense of WFA and we feel this comes through well in the report, which says: “This inclusive school is at the heart of the community. Pupils are thriving in this school.”
We are extremely proud of the report and feel it really reflects us, as a new and growing school, and where we are on our journey.
We were so delighted that the children’s attitudes towards learning and life shone out and we were immensely proud of the way they helped us to showcase our school during the inspection.
We were also thrilled with the feedback that many families gave either through Parent View or conversations with the Ofsted inspectors.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our families for the fantastic support and partnership that you have shown over the past two and a half years. It is this close partnership between home and school that has helped us to create a school we can all feel really proud of.
We would also like to thank our Academy Council, the CCA group and the Cabot Learning Federation Board, all whom have supported us to grow and develop as a school and ensure we are on track and are able to meet the needs of all our children and families.
If you have any questions or queries about the report please let us know, and in the meantime we hope you enjoy reading it.
The Team at Wallscourt Farm Academy
Wallscourt Farm Academy opened in September 2013 as a brand new academy. Part of the set-up process included a Pre-Opening Inspection, which took place in July 2013. The Lead Inspector met with our Principal, Susie Weaver and our Project Manager, Bryony Green. The inspector was able to inspect all the required aspects of the pre-opening requirements, and made a full recommendation to the DfE with no further actions to follow-up. This successful inspection enabled the funding agreement to be processed and Wallscourt Farm to open to children and families in September.
