Woodlands rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted

CIT - Community Inclusive Trust. Where learning comes first

We are delighted to share our recent Ofsted report with the school community following a visit in April.

Ofsted noted ‘at Woodlands Academy pupils learn the ‘Woodlands Way’. Pupils learn to make their
time in school worthwhile. They learn to be ambitious and to build on their achievements… caring staff expertly support pupils if they need help to manage their behaviour or emotions.’

The report added ‘leaders have significantly improved the culture of learning in the school. They
ensure that staff have high aspirations for pupils. Pupils experience a broad curriculum that matches the ambition of the national curriculum. It is thoughtfully adapted to meet individual pupils’ needs.

Pupils learn how to develop positive relationships with others. They develop strong relationships with staff. Staff listen to their worries or concerns. Pupils know that staff will support them with learning. This ensures that pupils are happy, feel safe and enjoy coming to this school.’

Laura Turner, Headteacher of Woodlands Academy, commented: “It is with great pleasure to share the fantastic news that Woodlands Academy is now rated as a ‘Good’ School. I am enormously proud of everyone who has played a part in helping and securing this tremendous result. 

I would like to thank all the staff, pupils, families and the local community for their continued support during this journey.”

Peter Bell, CEO of CIT Academies, added: “CIT and myself are absolutely delighted that the hard work of staff and pupils over the last two years has been recognised by Ofsted, with all areas of the school being graded Good – well done to all.”
