Dear Ms Shaw

Requires improvement: monitoring inspection visit to Barnsley Academy

Following my visit to your school on 11 May 2016, I write on behalf of Her
Majesty's Chief Inspector of Education, Children's Services and Skills to report the
inspection findings. Thank you for the help you gave me and for the time you made
available to discuss the actions you are taking to improve the school since the most
recent section 5 inspection.

The visit was the first monitoring inspection since the academy was judged to
require improvement following the section 5 inspection in September 2015. It was
carried out under section 8 of the Education Act 2005.

Senior leaders, the school improvement board and United Learning are taking
effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement identified at the last
section 5 inspection in order to become a good school.

The school should take further action to:


improve attendance, particularly of disadvantaged pupils
develop the use of progress information by leaders to hold teachers to
account for the progress of their pupils.
