OFSTED Inspection Reports of Trust Schools

Princetown Primary

‘Effective partnership with the An Daras Multi-Academy Trust has strengthened leadership at all levels within the school.

‘The management partnership with the An Daras Multi-Academy Trust has been instrumental in helping the school to move forward. It provides regular challenge to senior leaders and governors’. (Inspection Report/June 2019)


 St Catherines  C of E Primary

 ‘The school has benefited from support provided by the multi-academy trust to which it belongs’ (Inspection Report/April 2019)

 ‘The Trust has provided strong support to the school since it became an academy in 2016. Academy Improvement Officers have provided advice and guidance to firm up leadership. They have also contributed to leaders’ accurate self-evaluation. School staff share practice with other colleagues in the trust and benefit from joint training events. Finance and human resources matters are also more effectively dealt with as a result of the school being part of the Trust’ (Inspection Report/2019


Werrington Primary

‘In January 2016, the school joined the An Daras Multi-Academy Trust. This has strengthened the quality of teaching through sharing best practice and cross-school moderation of pupils’ work. Staff value the opportunities such as shared moderation and training that the trust gives them’  (Inspection Report/April 2018) 


North Petherwin Primary 

‘Since the last inspection, the school has joined the An Daras Multi-Academy Trust, which has strengthened the leadership capacity of the school and provided effective professional development for leaders and teachers. The trust also provides opportunities for staff to work with a wider range of colleagues to support each other to ensure better outcomes for pupils. The trust has helped leaders to develop and refine their self-evaluation processes and provides an additional validation of senior leaders’ monitoring’  (Inspection Report/March 2018)


Windmill Academy

‘In your role as Executive Headteacher of the school and Chief Executive Officer {W. Hermon} of An Daras Multi-Academy Trust, you have a very clear insight into the strengths of the school and the areas of its work that require further development. You have a good understanding of the school’s position within the trust and how it can draw on support from other schools in it if necessary. As a consequence of this clarity, the school’s self-evaluation processes and strategic development planning are of high quality and place the school on a strong footing to improve further. You, the trust and school leaders, including governors, have already demonstrated the capacity to bring about swift improvement in the quality of education, such as in the early years foundation stage, where outcomes for children have risen sharply’ (Inspection Report/Dec 2016)
