Improving Ofsted ratings across the board
We are incredibly proud of our Ofsted inspection performances across the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust. Many of the schools that have joined the trust since its formation in 2014 came to us with a great deal of challenges, with poor attendance and results chief among them – and some were placed in Special Measures as a result of poor performance.
Since joining the Trust, all of our academies have greatly improved behaviour, attendance, academic results, and the quality of teaching and student outcomes – and this has been firmly reflected in increasingly positive Ofsted inspections. Many have come to be rated Good or even Outstanding in many areas, even after just one year with the Trust.
