Moorlands Academy rated 'Good' by Ofsted

18 January 2019

The Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust (DNEAT) academy has shown rapid improvement and is now good in all areas with the inspector stating: 'Leaders have established a culture of high expectations of both pupils and teachers, meaning that 'children in the school make strong progress'.

The report shows a real upturn in the school’s performance since it became a Diocese of Norfolk Education Academies Trust (DNEAT) Academy in 2013. The watchdog recognised this clearly in the report saying that ‘DNEAT provides effective support’ and that ‘leaders have worked relentlessly to improve the quality of teaching, learning and assessment in the school.’

The thirteen page report which was carried out by three inspectors in December goes on to say: ‘there is a kind and caring ethos that reflects the school’s core values. Pupils are taught and encouraged to make the right choices, even when the right path is not the easiest one to follow.’

Headteacher Kevin Lee, who was appointed in 2015, said:

“We are all really delighted with this report. We are very proud of our school, the children are amazing and the report recognises this, as well as the huge improvements that we have made. It also rightly recognises the hard work and dedication of our staff, Governors and DNEAT. We want this report to act as a springboard for the next stage in the story of Moorlands”

Mary Jane Edwards, CEO of DNEAT paid tribute to the hard work and commitment of the staff and governors saying:

“The hard work and dedication of all the staff, governors and children has paid off. This report was an absolute pleasure to read and I hope those who have done so much for the children at Belton and their community are pleased with this fantastic result.”
