Aicha - Year 6 Leaver
I am the Executive Principal of the Federation of George Betts and Shireland Hall Primary Academies. Our Academy partner is the Elliot Foundation. Together we are committed to working with children, families and the local community to provide an enriched curriculum , promoting Learning for Life and preparing our children for their future.
I am delighted to be able to tell you that George Betts continues to go from strength to strength. Some really important indicators for this are:
Our 2022 SATs results for Year 6 were ‘above national’ in Reading, Writing and Maths,(72% compared to 59% National) with a high proportion of children achieving greater depth (40% in Maths and 61% in Reading).
Outcomes for children in our Early Years continue to rise.
Our Year 1 Phonics screening results for the past 3 years have been above the national average.
Attendance is in line with national data and is better than within the local authority (Sandwell).
Our previous Ofsted inspection (June 2019) acknowledged that pupil behaviour is ‘exemplary’, with provision for personal development and welfare being judged as ‘outstanding’. We feel that this still remains the case.
We actively support schools both within and beyond the multi academy trust.
