Sheffield Academy JinxedSchool PM Praised for ‘Dynamism’ is One of Two Found Wanting by Ofsted

Two multi-million pound academies have been described as inadequate by Ofsted in the same week. Sheffield Springs Academy and Westminster Academy have both been heavily criticised by inspectors for failing to reach high enough standards and have had their overall performance given a grade four – the lowest possible mark.

Sheffield Springs was visited by Gordon Brown in May, the next week  inspectors called. The Prime Mentalist praised the school’s pupils for their “dynamism”, “determination to succeed” and “high morale”.  The inspectors on the other hand pointed to teachers failing to meet students’ individual needs, poor leadership and inadequate governance. 

Very much like our national situation in a microcosm:  failing to meet individual needs, poor leadership and inadequate governance.
