The Elliot Foundation currently has 28 open schools which touch the lives of almost 11,000 pupils. Sixteen of these schools were sponsored academies, ten were converters and one is a basic need new school. In 2011-12 75% of our schools were either below floor standards or in an OfSTED category. Today, 79% of our schools inspected since becoming academies are good or outstanding, four require improvement and one is ‘inadequate’. 

As of August 2019, 23 out of 28 of our open academies have had full OFSTED inspections. Of these 21, 7 (33%) were judged outstanding in all categories (national average 19%) and 10 (48%) were judged to have outstanding leadership (national average 20%). So despite having schools that are between two to three times more deprived than the national average, we are more likely to be judged outstanding. All of which goes to support our core belief that schools can succeed anywhere.

In 2016 the government introduced new tests for children at Key Stage 2 and in 2019 59% of the children in the Elliot Foundation achieved this new ‘expected standard’ compared against a national average of 65%.
