Major academy chain given another warning over a 'failing school'
One of the country’s biggest academy chains has been it could lose a failing secondary school – just days after receiving a similar warning over one of its primary schools.  The national schools commissioner, Dominic Herrington, has told Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) that he will consider issuing a termination warning notice unless Bexleyheath Academy improves.The warning follows a critical Ofsted inspection, which rated the school as "inadequate" and placed it in special measures. Mr Herrington’s letter to AET said: “As the National Schools Commissioner acting on behalf of the Secretary of State, I need to be satisfied that this academy can achieve rapid and sustained improvement."If I am not satisfied this can be achieved, I will consider issuing a Termination Warning Notice. If there is no clear improvement at the school in its 2020 educational outcomes or in the next Ofsted Section 5 judgement, our default position will be to remove the school from AET."The Ofsted report found that the school was failing to give its pupils an acceptable standard of education. It said: “Leaders are not demonstrating the capacity to improve the school.  Leaders have not taken essential actions to make improvements. Standards have fallen for several years.”
