Information about this school

Chadsmead Primary Academy became a sponsored academy on 1 September 2016 as a 'fresh start'.

It was previously a converter academy. The school is sponsored by CAT. When its predecessor school was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be inadequate overall.

CAT is governed by a board of trustees. A local governing body oversees the work of the school and reports to the hub governing body. The hub governing body comprises representatives of the trust and the executive leadership team.

An interim headteacher was appointed until the new headteacher joined the school in September 2017. The school is similar to an average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for support through the pupil premium grant is above the national average.

The proportion of pupils with SEND is below the national average. The majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups and the proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language are much lower than the national averages.
