A troubled secondary school on the Isle of Wight which is facing an uncertain future received another blow today with the publication of a damning Ofsted report.
Sandown Bay Academy is now set to go back into special measures after inspectors criticised the running of the school and levels of achievement.
The report said that:
- Pupils have been let down in the quality of education they receive for too long.
- Inconsistencies in teaching mean the pace of learning overall is too slow.
- Too many pupils are persistently absent
And it highlighted turbulent leadership and a loss of confidence in the academy chain running the school.
The Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) who are in charge said it's aware of the school's issues - as well as its strengths - and will address any weaknesses identified in the report.
