Ofsted

We are delighted to announce that Ranikhet Academy has been rated as Good by Ofsted in it’s most recent inspection on 12th & 13th May 2021.


Ofsted’s inspectors noted that Ranikhet Academy is a friendly and nurturing school where pupils are kind to each other, and where leaders and staff know every pupil’s individual needs and interests very well. This helps to keep pupils happy, safe, and learning well.

Pupils are polite and well behaved, while bullying is rare and children know that any incidents will be quickly and fairly sorted. Attendance has significantly improved at the school, in large part due to the fact that pupils enjoy learning and actively like coming to school. They focus well on their lessons and are well supported by teachers throughout their learning.

Leaders take great care to prioritise pupils’ personal development as well as their intellectual learning. Pupils appreciate learning about how to keep themselves and their friends safe in the local community, and have their emotional and mental wellbeing well protected. They have a wide range of extra-curricular activities to enjoy and to ensure they develop their own skills and interests outside of the classroom.

Everyone at the school has high ambitions for their pupils, which results in strong results in reading and maths in particular. Leaders have a strategic and reflective approach to improving every aspect of the school, and can be confident that they have a secure foundation in place on which to build for the future. Teachers know that some pupils have gaps in their learning, and have effective plans to identify and fill in these gaps, to ensure that pupils’ learning is far stronger than it has been previously.

The inspectors also highlighted the support of the REAch2 Academy Trust, which has played a key role in challenging the head of school as well as other school leaders. The Trust has ensured that the school’s curriculum provides a strong framework for teaching, that school staff have the training they need to support each pupil to access the curriculum, and has provided external support for pupils with additional learning needs.
