* 'In a short space of time, the new head teacher, trust CEO and senior leaders have created a calm place to learn. Pupils' behaviour is improving.'
* 'Leaders have put in place systems and structures to teach pupils how to behave respectfully. Pupils follow school routines at the start of the day and following break and lunchtimes. This enables lessons to begin in an orderly way.'
* 'Leaders and managers are taking effective action to improve behaviour and secure consistently positive attitudes to learning. Safeguarding arrangements are effective.'
At Waterside Academy we offer excellent staff support and leadership development, good career progression opportunities and a friendly and dedicated approach to school leadership.
