A high school in Great Yarmouth has been praised by the education watchdog as a place where pupils can 'thrive and achieve their potential'.

Great Yarmouth Charter Academy, part of the Inspiration Trust, has been rated 'good' by Ofsted for the second time in a row.

Inspectors visited the school over two days in June and described it as a "safe and structured environment".

"The relationships between staff and pupils are positive. It is common to see staff eating lunch with pupils and engaging them in conversation.

"The most disadvantaged pupils are provided with a range of opportunities to ensure they can succeed. From breakfast club to subsidised activities, the school takes its role in ensuring pupils have the chance to thrive very seriously," inspectors said.

The report noted the programme for supporting pupils who struggle to read is "a real strength of the school".

It also said that most pupils make the right decisions in terms of their behaviour - but that the school recognises that levels of suspension are high and not all pupils are attending school often enough.

An area where the school could improve was communicating changes in behaviour policy more effectively.

Principal Dean Rosembert said: “We’re incredibly pleased with the outcome, a testament to all the hard work our staff and pupils have put in to make Charter what it is today.

"The amazing opportunities our pupils receive has been recognised as a real strength of the academy and I thank all that have dedicated time and effort to make this happen.”

Louise Jackson, secondary director at Inspiration Trust, said: “This outcome is something to be celebrated by the whole Great Yarmouth Charter Academy community: pupils, staff and parents.

"The school prides itself on having high expectations for behaviour and has built a culture based on mutual respect and celebration."
