One of the many features that Ofsted picked up on in their visit earlier this year, was the high quality assemblies. Part of this outstanding practice has been to resist using assemblies as a time to address any issues/problems around the academy. Instead, they always focus on positive / aspirational themes. This is critical when striving to raise the aspirations of a cohort of young people.
The Principal emailed all staff some slides he has used so that they can be printed off and displayed in classrooms.
