Comment on the recent Ofsted Inspection report
The leadership of Huish Episcopi Academy said: “The recent Ofsted inspection for our school is disappointing for everyone and it is clear we need to raise standards. There are some positives to build on, including our opportunities for developing talent through careers advice, work experience and extra-curricular activities, and our knowledgeable teachers setting aspirational expectations through our sixth form courses.”
“The report identified areas for improvement including behaviour in the classroom and around the school so students can feel safe, respected, and concentrate on a good standard of learning with an improved curriculum. As a school community we can achieve that together, and work has already begun on measures to tackle poor behaviour.
We understand that this report is concerning for pupils, families, and our wider community. However, it also provides a strong edict for change, with clear indications of the actions we need to take to improve the school. These changes are necessary, and work has started immediately to make the required improvements.”
