Reports and Plans
One of the main reasons for the continued success of Rushey Mead Academy and its pioneering outlook is a constant focus on evaluating all aspects of practice and making sure we plan effectively for the future.
We perceive change as an opportunity not a threat and welcome the views of others to help us consider if we are doing the right things to have impact.
The academy undertakes frank evaluations of all areas, in particular focusing on student achievement, the quality of teaching, behaviour and safety, leadership and management and outreach and collaboration. From the evaluation we plan for future improvement, knowing that even an outstanding academy like Rushey Mead has a lot more to do.
In addition to our own in-house reviews and observations others are welcomed in to academy to share their expert opinions. In particular the academy’s governors are all linked to an area of provision and review that area with academy leaders, challenging them to maintain excellent standards. ‘Challenge Partners’is a national group of forward-thinking schools of which Rushey Mead is a lead partner. Every year we undergo a ‘Challenge Partners review’ to consider our effectiveness and Ofsted also considers whether the academy continues to be ‘Outstanding’. We are pleased to share reviews, plans and evaluations and the links below reflect most recent examples:
