It’s a time for celebration for parents, staff, and pupils of a local primary school situated in Handsworth, Birmingham following an amazing Ofsted report.
Oasis Academy Boulton in Handsworth received a visit from Ofsted inspectors this month, and in a letter addressed to the Principal Shilpa Rathore, they declared the Early Years Provision as “Outstanding” and all other areas of the Academy as “Good”.
Oasis Academy Boulton was previously inspected in May 2015 where it was also declared “Good” in all areas. In the report, Ofsted praised the Principal and staff as the school being a climate of openness, ambition, and above all, the belief that everyone matters. Highlights in the report include:
- “The school is a pleasant place to be. Pupils are happy to be there.”
- “Relationships across the school are respectful and supportive.”
- “Pupils’ books show that they learn well across a wide range of subjects.”
- “Pupils are proud of their work and try hard to do their best.”
- “The early year’s provision remains exceptional.”
Inspectors praised the Principal Shilpa Rathore and the Academy leadership team, saying that children in the early years grow tremendously in confidence and make rapid progress across all areas of learning, and teaching is highly effective.
Shilpa Rathore, Principal of Oasis Academy Boulton, commented on the glowing report, saying; “We are delighted that Ofsted have recognised the hard work and dedication of all our children, families and staff. I am so proud, this has been a fantastic team achievement.”
“I am confident that Oasis Academy Boulton will continue to go from strength to strength.”
Inspectors were particularly impressed that leaders actively seek ways to see how the school’s work can positively benefit individual families and the whole community.
Paul Tarry, Regional Director of Birmingham Academies at Oasis Community Learning, added; “The fantastic Ofsted report reflects the dedication of the Principal all the staff at Oasis Academy Boulton. This is a highly inclusive academy where every pupil is supported to do their very best.”
