Mablethorpe Primary Academy praised by Ofsted for its progress
STAFF and children from Mablethorpe Primary Academy are celebrating after a recent OFSTED inspection.
Following on from a notice to improve served to the Academy's predecessor school the academy has achieved the best judgement possible for its recent inspection.
Inspectors examined records and documentation, observed lessons and met with pupils, staff and members of the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT).
In a letter to the school inspector Jeremy Spencer said: "Having considered all the evidence I am of the opinion that at this time the academy is making reasonable progress in raising standards for all pupils."
During the inspection no inadequate teaching was observed by inspectors and the majority was judged to be good or better.
Principal Catherine Teale said: "We have made outstanding progress since September and staff and pupils are rightfully proud of their achievements.
"We have ambitious plans for the academy and we are extremely pleased Ofsted recognises we are moving in the right direction."
Inspectors also met informally with parents and carers on the playground as they brought their children to school and observed 16 lessons taught by 16 teachers.
Chief executive of the GDFT Barry Day said: "It is only six months since we took over the Mablethorpe Community Primary School and I am delighted with this very positive inspection report.
"My congratulations go to Miss Teale for her work as principal and to Mrs Hadley for her invaluable support as executive principal.
"I am also extremely proud of our pupils and staff and grateful to parents for their on-going support."
The report also praised teaching assistants for providing "discreet and effective support for pupils in lessons, particularly those who find learning difficult, disabled pupils, and those with special educational needs."
