Ofsted Report - One Degree Academy

Dear Parent/Carer,

RE: Ofsted report on One Degree Academy published

I am delighted to be able to share with you the report we have received from Ofsted following our inspection in February 2019. 

It gives me great pleasure to confirm that we have been graded as ‘Outstanding’ in every area.

We were inspected by Andrew Hook, one of Her Majesty’s Inspectors with an early years and primary specialism. Mr Hook and his inspection team asked me to pass on his thanks to all parents and children. He noted your warmth and openness, and was grateful for those of you who answered his questions about our school and who shared your thoughts on ParentView.

Along with parents and children, the whole team here at One Degree have worked incredibly hard over the past 3 years to establish our great school, and I am delighted that Ofsted recognised this as well as exceptional progress our children are making.

So often, our staff team give exceptional support to children and show the greatest commitment to One Degree’s work, and I want to congratulate every member of staff for their part in this team achievement.

Our governors, many of whom have been planning One Degree for the best part of a decade, give us many hours of their time, as volunteers, to support us and to challenge us to do better. I would like to thank them too.

The children and families are at the heart of everything we do in our growing community: we all appreciate your support and your kindness.  

I am extremely proud of the journey we have been on together as a community, and am very much looking forward to an exciting future together.
