Spalding Academy praised by MP Sir John Hayes




MP Sir John has has visited Spalding Academy to congratulate the school on its 'Good Ofsted' rating.

As previously reported in the Guardian, inspectors visited the school on last month and rated it ‘Good’ for overall effectiveness, leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment, personal development, behaviour and welfare and outcomes for pupils.

The report said executive head teacher Lucy Conley and other senior leaders provide clear direction and strong leadership and that the school has improved rapidly since its relaunch in September 2016.

Previously called the Sir John Gleed School, it has been dogged by years of disappointing reports and inspectors had rated the new Academy ‘inadequate’ after visiting just weeks after the relaunch.

Delighted head Mrs Conley said: “The ‘Good’ outcome for Spalding Academy is a tremendous achievement that the whole school community truly deserves. This report is fantastic news for the Spalding community and brings the official recognition that there is now a good non-selective school option for parents in the town."
