Further details about the role

Ormiston Horizon Academy is a successful 11-16 secondary academy (part of the Ormiston Academy Trust).

Judged by OFSTED to be a ‘GOOD’ school in November 2023, they said:

There are high expectations for pupils at Ormiston Horizon Academy. All pupils understand and show the values of respect, resilience and responsibility. Pupils appreciate the positive environment of their school. Teachers treat them as individuals and they welcome this. Pupils spoke to inspectors and talked openly about their positive relationships with staff. Pupils say they can ‘be who they want to be’ in this inclusive community.

The school has high expectations for pupils’ behaviour. Lessons begin and end in a calm and orderly manner. Pupils know they can report any behaviour issues, which staff deal with rapidly. Bullying is rare. When it occurs, staff take appropriate action to deal with it. Pupils know that inappropriate language is not acceptable and report any incidences swiftly.

The school prioritises pupils’ personal development. Staff support and encourage pupils’ well-being and mental health very well. Pupils take part in a range of enrichment activities such as chess, girls’ football and cadets. Pupils represent the community on the local authority’s Youth Council. Pupil reading leaders support younger pupils in school and in a local primary school. Empowering pupils to support and guide younger pupils and be active citizens in the community is working well.

Commitment to safeguarding

At OHA, we take our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all students seriously. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued.

All staff are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect.

Through our ethos and curriculum, we promote a common sense of identity and support diversity showing our students how different communities can be united by common experiences and values.

Strict adherence to the Safeguarding Policy is mandatory for all staff, governors, visitors and volunteers in the academy and is not subject to individual discretion.
