12 School’s Ofsted vow Burscough Priory has vowed to improve after getting an ‘inadequate’ Ofsted rating. The Trevor Road school’s senior leaders were criticised, saying they “do not systematically monitor the quality of what happens in the school.” Its governors were also found not to have an accurate understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the school. Consequently, they have failed to challenge school leaders effectively.” Oftsed also said the behaviour of pupils is “inadeqauate”. The school has now implemented an action plan: “We are disappointed by the judgement however, we accept the issues raised by the inspectors’ findings and, with the support of the local authority, have already started to make improvements where they are needed. We are developing a long-term improvement action plan with clear timescales to address the issues identified. “As a result of the Ofsted judgement the school received a letter from the Regional Schools Commissioner stating that they will act to convert our school into an Academy, once they have identified a suitable sponsor.”
