Ofsted Inspection: January 2020 – Final Report
You will know that King Edward VII underwent a full Ofsted inspection in January 2020.
Attached is a copy of the final Ofsted report.
The report recognises the positives but also highlights key issues that we need to address.
King Edward VII joined the Apollo Partnership Trust on the 1st March 2020. The Trust has appointed a new Governing Body for King Edward VII with whom school staff and Trust Leaders are already working to address the important issues identified by Ofsted and to ensure that the necessary improvements are made, without delay.
I would like to offer you my assurance that everyone at the school is absolutely committed to implementing a clear Improvement Strategy and Action Plan that will drive-up standards and improve educational outcomes for all of our students. We are now fortunate to have the support and expertise of the Apollo Trust to support us in development and delivery of that Plan. We are clear that our approach needs to be pragmatic, transparent and accountable, in order that demonstrable progress is consistently achieved and sustained over time.
We will continue to notify and update you in terms of milestones achieved and overall progress in addressing the areas identified in the Ofsted report.
A copy of the report is available on the school website at www.kinged.org.uk, together with FAQs.
