2017 Ofsted Results

The Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted) is a non-ministerial government department. The Office carries out regular inspections of each school in England, resulting in a published evaluation of the effectiveness of the school. An adverse report may include a recommendation for further intervention in the running of the school.

The latest inspection took place 18-19 May 2017. The inspection was initially a monitoring visit (section 8 inspection) but converted to a full inspection (section 5 inspection). The judgements on George Salter Academy were:

  • Overall effectiveness: Good (2)
  • Effectiveness of leadership and management: Good (2)
  • Quality of teaching, learning and assessment: Good (2)
  • Personal development, behaviour and welfareL Good (2)
  • Outcomes for pupils: Good (2)
  • 16 to 19 study programmes: Good (2)

GSA was judged to be a Good school. This is an excellent result for the Academy and it is good to know that the work we are doing to prepare our students for the working world is so highly regarded. This set of grades continues to demonstrate the real progress that the school has made and continues to make. We should all be proud of the work that we have done as students, staff and parents to make this outcome possible.

The Good Ofsted report tells us that the direction we are heading in is the right one for GSA and our community.
