Dear Parents/Carers,

It is with great pleasure that we can share with you the Ofsted Report from our recent inspection.

We are delighted to confirm that the school has been graded ‘Good’ in all areas.


The process was very detailed and rigorous and we are very pleased that this is acknowledged. We would like to thank all those who took part in the inspection: staff, governors, parents and pupils alike.

We felt the inspection team gained a clear understanding of our school community: 

“Atlantic Academy sits proudly on the southernmost point of Portland. Leaders share pupils’ pride in the uniqueness of the setting. They are building strong relationships with the community and making the most of their surroundings” Ofsted 2022

We couldn’t be more proud of the pupils in our school who, “spoke of the school as a ‘family’ where they feel confident about sharing any worries with staff.’’ We are particularly pleased that Ofsted recognised the journey we have been on and we would like to thank our parents and community who have supported the Academy during this time. 

This is a very good report and it is pleasing that the school is securely graded as ‘Good’. The Ofsted inspection was thorough, led diligently and was professionally undertaken. We were open and transparent around all aspects of school life and had much evidence to support the process. 

Once again, may we thank all those involved in the inspection itself, especially the staff, governors and children who continue to uphold our values.

Kind regards,

Miss Heppell – Principal
