In November 2016 both Mary Rose and Cliffdale Primary Academy were visited by Ofsted inspectors.
Mary Rose was first with a 1 day inspection. It was a very thorough process and even though it was only a day, at least 11 lessons were visited and additional learning walks took place. At the end of the process we were delighted to receive confirmation that Mary Rose continues to be outstanding.
Cliffdale was visited with a 2 day inspection just 3 weeks later. This was a very different experience and also extremely rigorous. The SAT self evaluation had judged Cliffdale to be outstanding and we were delighted when this was confirmed by the Ofsted team. Cliffdale had been on a challenging, fast paced journey and it was really great to have this recognised.
The Solent Academies Trust strives for excellence in our determination to ensure the very best education possible for all of our children. We’re well on the way with all 3 of our schools being judged either good or outstanding. However we will never rest on our laurels and already have robust plans for the schools for next year to ensure we build on our achievements and continue to improve.
