We’ve recently received a “continues to be Good” Ofsted report for our March inspection. 

“We are delighted that the report has captured the ethos and essence of Co-op Academy Broadhurst. As a rights respecting gold school, the children are front and centre of everything we do and I am so pleased that this has been acknowledged in the report.”- Headteacher, Jan Gough

The report commends our school for its welcoming and can-do culture where pupils are proud to live up to leaders’ high expectations. Ofsted said:

“Pupils of all backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities are guaranteed a warm welcome at this happy and nurturing school. New pupils, including children in the early years, quickly settle in well and soon feel valued members of the Broadhurst family.

“Staff are always on hand with a warm smile and a listening ear if pupils have any worries or problems. Leaders have created a can-do culture where pupils are encouraged to try their best each day.”

The report praised the school for the support and opportunities provided to pupils’, stating:

“Pupils proudly strive to live up to leaders’ high expectations of them. They work hard and relish the wealth of opportunities that leaders provide. Pupils behave well and play in harmony together.”

Ofsted said that:

“parents and carers who shared their views, feel a valued part of the school community.”

On their Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) department, the report said:

“Leaders and staff have high ambition for pupils with SEND. Leaders have made sure that staff receive high-quality training and support. This helps them to swiftly identify pupils’ needs and to adapt the delivery of the curriculum effectively. Pupils with SEND are active members of the school community.”

CEO of Co-op Academies Trust, Dr Chris Tomlinson, said:

“Broadhurst has a fantastic community, with a very positive culture where staff and parents work effectively together to provide the best for their pupils. The school’s strong inclusive ethos is evident in the children’s pride and enjoyment of learning. The report reflects this and we’re very excited to see what the future holds.”
