Ofsted and Data

ofsted & data

Wood Green’s Academy most recent inspection by OFSTED took place in February 2020.

The school received a Good rating in the following categories (Quality of Education, Personal Development, Leadership and Management and Sixth Form) and were rated Outstanding in the Behaviour and Attitudes category. The Overall Effectiveness was rated as Good.

In February 2020 we were inspected by Ofsted under their new, more rigorous framework. During the two days, the students were absolutely fantastic. The inspectors were impressed with how well they are learning and the respect they showed the staff, inspectors and each other and the pride that they have in being part of the school. This excellent report is also testament to the dedication, hard work and expertise of all of the staff at Wood Green Academy.

There are so many positive comments in the report that recognise the significant strengths of the school and the improvements that we are making. We are particularly pleased with following comments:

We are often asked what makes our school so successful and the answer is quite simple – it is hard work and teamwork, by teachers, support staff and pupils.  This is called doing things “The Wood Green Way!”.

We are not complacent, improvement is always possible. To drive this improvement we know that we need to invest heavily in our staff. We have dedicated CPD time for teachers every week and offer a variety of training opportunities, including National College courses as we have a number of trained facilitators at the school.
