Ofsted Inspection May 2014

Victoria Lane Academy was inspected by Ofsted on May 14th and 15th and the Governors, staff and I would like to thank the whole school community for their fantastic support during this process. The final report is accompanying this newsletter and will be published nationally on the Ofsted website this week. We are absolutely delighted and extremely proud of the well earned recognition by Ofsted that our school is a GOOD school, which was described “as a happy, caring and safe environment where all children make good progress and everyone wants to succeed.”
