About Sheffield Park Academy
The Academy is housed in a purpose built £30 million building, which opened in 2008. After a visit from Ofsted inspectors in June 2013, the Academy was given a "good" grading in all 4 aspects of the inspection framework.
The summary of the inspection is as follows: The academy has improved significantly since the previous inspection because of intelligent leadership, influential governance and the creation of a clear vision for improvement which staff and students have embraced. This has resulted in students’ achievement, the quality of teaching and their behaviour and safety all moving from satisfactory to good. Students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted well. The academy has developed a positive climate for learning with good relationships between staff and students and among different groups of students.
Key areas for improvement highlighted at the previous inspection have been well-tackled. For example, there has been a huge improvement in students’ attendance.
The latest academic tracking data indicate that the rising trend in students’ attainments and achievements apparent over the past three years is set to continue. The academy has developed a number of highly effective partnerships which are supporting its improvement. Students with special educational needs and those who are supported by the pupil premium make particularly good progress.
Our ethos is underpinned by a sense of moral purpose and commitment to doing what is right for children and young people, supporting colleagues to achieve excellence and acting with integrity in all our dealings within and beyond the organisation, in the interests of young people everywhere.
