THE AXED TROUBLED pupils unit in Commonside Road, is improving according to government watchdog Ofsted.

The West Quadrant Unit is closing in July. It has and remains in special measures.

There are hopes that the Aspire Academy, backed by headteachers Vic Goddard and Helena Mills, will replace it.

The recent report stated:

Improve the quality of leadership and management by ensuring that all senior and middle leaders comply with the policies, procedures and vision for improvement of the centre.

Improve the behaviour and safety of the pupils by: – providing a learning environment that stimulates and challenges all
pupils to engage successfully in all lessons – ensuring that staff and pupils conform to the centre’s rules and
procedures – making sure that all teachers comply with policies and procedures to
ensure the safety of all pupils.

Raise the level of pupils’ achievement by ensuring that all staff make effective use of performance data, and evidence from the centre’s monitoring and tracking systems, so that the curriculum consistently meets the needs and abilities of all pupils.

Improve the quality of teaching by: – ensuring that all teachers plan effectively to meet the needs and
abilities of all pupils in all lessons raising the percentage of satisfactory or better teaching to at least
80% by October 2012 and then ensure that 50% is good or better and that none is inadequate by April 2013.
