Pupils Wind Up Education Inspectors – Willenhall – Edu News UK.

An under-achieving school in Willenhall, United Kingdom has been reported as being rude and impolite to Education Inspectors. According to the BBC this news was reported in Ofsted Reports. 2017

Willenhall School - Education News

Willenhall School UK

 

The Watchdog Report – Reported Several Behavioral and Problematic Issues

  1. Students (sixth-former’s) were afraid to step outside due to the behavioral issues with the younger students.
  2. 70 per cent of teachers chose to leave the school during the 2015 / 2016 school year. Again having issues with younger students.
  3. Students harassed school inspectors by throwing food at them and harassing them in the corridors.
  4. School was inspected in 2017 and more than a third of students continued to be absent.
  5. The quality of teaching was also said to be weak in the report.

These are just some of the problems faced by teachers and other students at this school. It has been also criticized as being one of the most under-achieving schools in the Midlands.

Willenhall E- ACT Academy Letter To Parents

As a result of the report Willenhall E-ACT Academy responded with a letter to parents citing 3 areas of improvement.

  1. Willenhall E-ACT had strong leadership.
  2. They were driving all standards higher – from students behavioral issues to teaching methods.
  3. They are confident that Willenhall Academy will make rapid progress in all issues that arose in the Ofsted Report.

Ofsted’s Reaction

Oftsed said E-ACT “fully recognised the challenges” and had begun to “address aspects of greatest concern”, with its leaders’ judgements “fully in line with inspectors’ experiences and evidence”.

However, it said leaders and sponsors had overseen a decline in standards since a previous inspection in 2015.

“While there is an ambition to address inadequacies and to raise aspirations, there is not yet a sustainable track record in the school to suggest capacity for improvement,” it continued.
