Leadership is transformed at Sawtry Village Academy

Sawtry Village Academy has now moved out of special measures after the latest inspection by the education standards organisation.

The school was graded as still requiring improvement by Ofsted, but it rated the effectiveness of leadership and management as good and personal development, behaviour and welfare were also good.
Head Sarah Wilson, who was appointed last April, said they were “delighted” that the school’s hard work had been recognised.


The Ofsted report said: “Leadership and management, including governance, have been completely transformed since the last inspection. The inadequacies at the last inspection have been addressed.”

Mark Woods, CMAT executive principal, said: “CMAT has worked closely with the new leadership to turn the school around and we’ve seen huge improvements over the last 18 months.
“We are delighted that the academy is now out of special measures – this is another step towards a bright new future for Sawtry as part of the trust.”
