Phoenix Academy judged Good

Earlier this term, Phoenix Academy was visited by Ofsted. This was the school’s first inspection since joining STEP in January 2017.

We are pleased to confirm that, following the rigorous two-day inspection, Ofsted judged Phoenix Academy to be Good, with Outstanding for leadership and management.

Inspectors recognised that Phoenix has undergone significant changes since joining STEP: “Leaders and those in positions of governance have high aspirations for every pupil.  They are determined that the school will shake off the legacy of the past so that current pupils fulfil their full potential.”  Of course, particular praise should be reserved for the outstanding leadership of Mr Evans and his senior team, brilliantly supported by Mr Mills.

The personal development of the children was also recognised, something staff have been working on since 2017: “Pastoral care is strong here.  Pupils are supported successfully by staff when they find learning hard.  The use of a carefully adapted scheme of personal, social and health education (PSHE) also helps pupils understand the impact of prejudice and lack of tolerance, for instance.”

Although a very positive Ofsted, we recognise that there is still much to be achieved. The STEP Team at Phoenix Academy will continue working with passion and urgency to build on this tremendous achievement and continue the trajectory of improvement.
