Ofsted inspection outcomes this year

It’s been a busy year for Ofsted and Mead schools! Since Christmas, Ofsted teams have visited Kibworth Mead, Abbey Mead, North Mead, Brook Mead and Kestrel Mead. In the autumn term Castle Mead, Rowlatts Mead and Willowbrook Mead had inspection visits – that’s eight of our 13 schools.

We’ve been pleased by the inspectors’ feedback and comments, which was fair and accurate. Inspectors recognised the calm and mature behaviour of pupils, the commitment and hard work of the staff, the great practice happening in classrooms, and the expertise and leadership from the Trust. Here are a selection of the comments>

North Mead is a joyful and aspirational primary school.”

“Pupils love attending Abbey Mead Primary Academy. They really appreciate the phenomenal education that this wonderful school provides them.”

Castle Mead Academy is an exceptional school. There is a ‘can-do’ culture where staff ensure that pupils take a full and active part in school life.”

“Leaders have a clear and ambitious vision for (Kibworth Mead) and are determined that pupils will succeed here. They promote the school’s values of ‘work hard, be kind, be proud’.”
