We have no concerns regarding financial management at Sandymoor Free School and the Trust does not have a financial deficit.
On educational attainment, whilst the school received a good judgement from Ofsted in January 2014 it remains an academy of concern. The Progress 8 score in summer 2016 was -1.1 which is significantly below the LA average of 0.19 and the national average of 0. Only 33% of pupils achieved Grade C or above in English & maths (LA: 60.2%, National: 59.3%).
The pension deficit of the Trust for 2015/16 is £295,000.
The latest published financial statements for Sandymoor Free School 2015/16 show a cumulative carry forward surplus of £197,632.
