Ofsted

Cheam Common Infants' Academy is a good school

Pupils fondly talk about the range of things that they can do and they appreciate the happy atmosphere that is apparent to visitors and pupils alike. The high levels of attainment pupils reach in key basic subjects are complemented by good, and some excellent, aspects to their personal development such as their understanding and willingness to adopt healthy lifestyles and the extent to which they feel safe. As a result, they achieve outstanding outcomes overall.

One parent's comment reflected many pupils' experience: 

'My child loves going to school.'

Ofsted Inspection Support

 
The LEO Academy Trust supports schools through all aspects of school improvement and development, and this is especially true during an Ofsted inspection.  From the point of conversion, the central team works collaboratively with all member schools to build a strong professional relationship. 
Through this close working relationship the central team has an in-depth understanding of all aspects of our schools.  Therefore, from the moment one of our schools receives the Ofsted phone call, the central team is on hand to support and be present during the process.
 
It is likely that one of our colleagues from the Education & Learning Team will join the Academy Principal on the day Ofsted call, to ensure they have everything that they need ready for the inspection.  During the inspection process a small number of central team members will be available throughout.  Their support on the day is designed to provide the inspection team with as much information as possible about the collaborative support that has been given by the Trust.  The central team will also support senior leaders at the school to signpost the Inspector(s) to relevant information regarding the school’s current position as measured through the Trust’s audit systems.  
In line with the Confederation of School Trusts and the National Governance Association, governance sits within the responsibilities of the Trust Board.  In line with the Scheme of Delegation, the tasks and functions of governance are delegated to a Locality Committees. Therefore, the Trust Board will take a lead role with regard to governance during an Ofsted inspection.
 
It is important to note that whilst offering this support, the Trust central team will not deliver the school’s general day to day operational activities during an inspection.
