Haven High Pupils Achieve In 'Family' Environment

Haven High Academy’s latest Ofsted inspection has acknowledged the swift ‘effective action’ that has taken place there since the last report, along with many other areas of good progress – including pupil behaviour.

Both the school and the Voyage Education Partnership, its Trust, are ‘delighted ‘ with the positive report which resulted from Ofsted’s inspection in December 2021.

Emma Hadley, CEO of the Voyage Education Partnership, said: “Despite the challenges of a global pandemic, Haven High Academy has continued to improve and be ambitious for all of its pupils.

“This report gives us more reasons to be extremely proud of our students and staff there.

“We are also very pleased that Ofsted acknowledged the good behaviour of pupils, the high expectations for all, and the strong culture of safety and welfare. We know the hard work doesn’t stop here and we are confident that Haven High Academy will continue to progress from strength-to-strength.”

A spokesperson for Haven High Academy said: “This is the culmination of three years of effective internal support from the Trust and dedication shown by the excellent academy staff - dedication that remains steadfast throughout the unprecedented ongoing challenge of navigating the Covid-19 pandemic.   

“These findings uphold some of the reasons as to why Haven High Academy is now oversubscribed, with pupils and their parents choosing our academy to provide a world-class education in a nurturing and inclusive environment.”

The report stated: “Pupils behave well. They said that their school is like a family for them.”

It also said that the whole-school Reading priority was proving to be highly effective, and provision for pupils with SEND had improved.

Other highlights from Ofsted’s latest report included:

  • The academy has high expectations of what all pupils can achieve.
  • Safeguarding is effective.
  • Leaders have acted swiftly to continue to improve the academy and improvement plans are appropriate.
  • Pupils receive high quality careers advice and guidance.
  • All staff have access to high quality professional development.
  • Leaders have received effective support from the Trust.

In addition to the many positive points highlighted by Ofsted’s inspection, it also said the school should continue its focus on improving attendance for a small group of learners and ensure the planned review of the Key Stage 3 national curriculum is effective.
