School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The academy is an all through provider which opened for the first time in September 2013. It is located within the Olympic Park in the London Borough of Newham. It is situated in an innovative, purpose-built facility, previously used as the Olympic administration headquarters during the London 2012 Olympic Games. The academy has grown rapidly in size as families have moved into the new homes in the East Village from all over London and beyond. Pupil and teacher numbers have risen continually throughout the academic year. The academy is now larger than most other schools nationally and will be completely full, with pupils in every year group, from September 2015. It currently has no pupils in Year 11. Pupils come from a wide range of minority ethnic groups. The biggest groups are Black African and those of Asian heritage. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is above average. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs is recorded as being below average. This is because Newham recognises the needs of most pupils with a disability or special educational needs without using formal assessment. There are actually a significant number of pupils with a range of disabilities or special educational needs attending the academy, including some with more complex conditions.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils who are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which is additional government funding provided for pupils eligible for free school meals and looked after children, is well above the national average. Children within the early years provision attend for 15 hours a week in the Nursery and full time in Reception.

There are no public examination results to measure the school's performance against the government's current floor standards.

Pupils rarely attend off-site alternative education provision. Currently, a very small number attends the Eleanor Smith special school and New Directions pupil referral unit.

Pupils are not entered early for examinations in Key Stage 4. The academy is sponsored by the Harris Federation, together with Lend Lease, the company responsible for the design, development and construction of the academy and the East Village on the Olympic Park.

The current principal was appointed from within the Harris Federation and took up her post at the start of the summer term 2015.
