School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Outwood Academy Acklam became a sponsor-led academy on 1 September 2013. Its sponsor is the Outwood Grange Academies Trust. When its predecessor school, Oakfields Community College was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to require special measures. The academy is an average sized secondary school.

The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs is above average.

The proportion of students who are disadvantaged and so eligible for the pupil premium is well above that found nationally. The pupil premium is additional funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals and those in the care of the local authority. The majority of students are White British. An above average proportion of students is from minority ethnic backgrounds, and a well-above average proportion speaks English as an additional language.

The academy uses alternative provision involving off-site education for students. A small number attend the Parkwood and Ashfield pupil referral units. A further small group of students follow vocational courses at Prior Pursglove College. The Chief Executive of the Outwood Grange Academies Trust and the Executive Principal of Outwood Academy Acklam are national leaders of education (NLE) who provide support and expertise to all academies within the trust. The academy meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for students' attainment and progress by the end of Year 11.
