Trinity Academy: HMI Monitoring Visit
28 September 2018

Her Majesty’s Inspector Lee Elliott visited Trinity Academy on Friday 28th September 2018, in order to conduct a monitoring visit. The purpose of the visit was to assess progress made since the last full inspection in September 2017.I am delighted to report Mr Elliott’s conclusion:

Senior leaders and governors are taking effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement identified at the recent section 5 inspection in order for the school to become good.

In addition, Mr Elliott confirmed that arrangements for Safeguarding are secure, and he replaced the six points for improvement (PFIs) identified in our September 2017 Section 5 Inspection with these two:

The school should take further action to:

1. ensure that arrangements to reduce absence and persistent absence for all pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, result in more rapid and marked improvement to pupils’ attendance

2. further improve the quality of teaching, learning and assessment so that progress improves, particularly in mathematics.

The full letter will shortly be published on the Ofsted website. In the pages that follow the findings of the inspector are listed against the six areas for improvement, with strengths followed by areas for improvement. This forms the basis for the school’s new and detailed Action Plan, which the Local Governing Body are considering in their forthcoming meeting.
