At the end of an Ofsted Inspection last week Birkdale Academy, whos motto is "Only the Best will do" were deemed to be "Inadequate with Special Measures" This must come as a huge blow to the Headteacher Gary Loveridge and to the Governing Body just 4 months into their Academy status. Three years ago the school was a "good school with outstanding features"
The inspection should be available to the parents 10 working days after the Inspection and 15 working days on the Ofsted website.
Below is a link to a presentation given to people by the school to persuade them to accept Academy status. It all seems so very long ago now.
