​Ofsted Praise For Mansfield Alternative Provision School

13th December 2016

Ofsted Praise For Mansfield Alternative Provision School

Staff at the recent R.E.A.L. Alternative Provision School in Mansfield have an extra reason to celebrate this Christmas, after a recent Ofsted inspection concluded ‘this is a good school’.

The education watchdog published its report on the school, following the first visit by inspectors since it opened its doors in January 2016, which stated that: 

  1. The headteacher demonstrates excellent leadership.

  2. The school provides an outstanding, flexible curriculum.

  3. The quality of teaching and learning across the full curriculum is consistently good.

  4. In the short time since the school opened, pupils have made good progress across a range of subjects, including English and Mathematics, from mostly low starting points.

  5. Post-16 students make good progress with nationally-recognised qualifications.

  6. Leaders and governors have a strong and accurate understanding of how well pupils are achieving.

  7. Leaders and governors are highly ambitious for the school.

  8. Pupils demonstrate strong improvements in their attendance

Headteacher Martin Davies said: “We are delighted with the report and feel it is an accurate and honest appraisal of where we are as a brand new school.

“It's testimony to the hard work and team ethic that exists at the R.E.A.L. Alternative Provision School. The leadership team, governors, staff and students can be proud of the very positive report they have earned and fully deserve.”

With such a positive first year the school must keep up the same standards in their second year to ensure they keep providing an good service to those who have struggled in state schools.
