Lincoln academy gets ‘outstanding’ rating

Lincoln Carlton Academy has been judged as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted following its first ever inspection last month.

The primary school on Carlton Boulevard received the highest judgment from inspectors who described the school as having “very rapidly achieved its vision of ‘creating a haven in which children can flourish.’”

The school, which opened in September 2013, was praised by inspectors for demonstrating the highest standard across all areas, including pupil behaviour, safety and achievement.

Inspectors wrote that “The staff at the academy have quickly established a very positive and calm environment in which outstanding learning can take place.”

The quality of teaching and leadership also received the highest praise, with the report highlighting the school’s commitment to training and developing staff in partnership with other Lincolnshire schools.

Lincoln Carlton is part of the Kyra Teaching School Alliance, a group of over thirty Lincolnshire schools committed to delivering teacher training, school to school support and research to secure educational improvement in the county.

Head of School, Rebecca Malam said: “We are delighted to receive this validation of our work from Ofsted. We are still a very new school, yet the strong sense of community and the commitment to learning has shone through from the very beginning.

“I want to add my deepest thanks to our staff, governors, parents and, of course, the children for their support and hard work during these past two years.”
