580. All Saints Academy, Plymouth
The All Saints Academy was founded in 2013. As a private religious based school they have their agenda. However the state also have theirs and it is to secure that schools in the country deliver a good quality and the Ofsted inspection found that the school didn’t deliver. Especially the quality of teaching was too variable and teachers’ expectations of pupils were too low.
Teaching the students the bible and exclude parts of the evolution history which does not fit what the bible claims does not ensure good quality.
However the schools have not addressed this. Instead they focused on punishing the understimulated students isolating them for 24 academic hours and sending them home with proper communication to the parents. Does that improve the student material? Of course not.
It cannot be fun to be there as student. There are properly other schools in the area. The parents should move their children away from this school.
