Emergency inspection school report

King Fahad Academy

Bromyard Avenue, Acton, London, W3 7HD

Inspection dates 23 April 2015
Overall outcome Independent school standards met

Reason for the inspection

  • The inspection was undertaken at the request of the registration authority for
    independent schools, following information received. The main aims of the inspection
    were to examine how well the school provides for the health, welfare and safety of
    pupils. In addition, the inspection aimed to examine the quality of teaching and the
    curriculum, including how well the school provides for the spiritual, moral, social and
    cultural development of pupils. These are Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the Independent Schools
    Main findings
  • Teachers’ good subject knowledge helps most pupils to make good progress. However,
    in a small number of cases, there is variability in the quality of pupils’ work. A small
    number of students say that some teachers do not expect enough of them. This means
    that more needs to be done to improve how some teachers plan learning, if teaching is
    to be judged good. However, students are interested in their learning and most say that
    teachers help them learn well. Teachers make good use of a wide range of good quality
    resources. This engages students and helps them develop their knowledge and
  • Learning in the early years and Key Stage 1 provides a sound basis for children to
    develop self-knowledge, for example by learning about their own families. They learn
    that people come from different countries and have different backgrounds. Collaborative
    learning and social activities help them develop self-esteem, and respect for and
    curiosity about others.
  • The school has a framework for assessing pupils’ work. This tracks pupils’ progress.
    Leaders use this to arrange additional support and intervention where pupils are
    underachieving. The school reviews pupils’ achievement at each stage of the
    International Baccalaureate qualification.
  • The school’s curriculum policy, based on the International Baccalaureate, is supported
    by detailed schemes of work and medium-term plans. These take into account the
    learning needs of pupils, including those with identified special educational needs.
  • The curriculum in the Early Years and Foundation Stage, throughout key stages 2 to 4
    and in the sixth form fully supports and promotes fundamental British values. The
    school celebrates the multi-national nature of the school. This reduces the risk of racism
    and intolerance of others. Pupils learn about other religions as well as their own. The
    development of personal skills and projects such as presentations about fundamental
    British values preclude the promotion of partisan political views. Speakers and visitors to
    the school, such as senior police officers and politicians, demonstrate how the school
    promotes a respect for the law in England and its institutions.
  • Older students receive careers guidance as they begin the International Baccalaureate
    programme and know about the options open to them on completion. Male and female
    students are equally ambitious to study at university.
  • During learning walks, pupils demonstrated positive behaviour in all classrooms. Both
    boys and girls show that they can work well individually, in groups and as a whole class.
    Some older students told the inspector that sometimes some pupils can distract them
    from their work. However, this type of behaviour was not seen by the inspector. The
    school makes clear its expectations of behaviour in its policy. When serious
    misbehaviour occurs, the school records it in detail and also the actions taken.
  • Pupils understand about different sorts of bullying. Students speak highly of the support
    of some staff in resolving issues. However, some older pupils say that there are a few
    staff who are not effective in helping to solve problems quickly. Nevertheless, they know
    who to speak with to get swift action.
  • The school teaches students about democracy, poverty and charity, and character and
    respect. Assemblies, alongside the academic and study skills curriculum, prepare
    students well for life in modern Britain. Students have opportunities to listen to external
    speakers, such as members of the police force.
  • The written policy for safeguarding and child protection is readily available on the
    school’s website and to visitors to the school. Safeguarding leads have completed up-to-
    date training. The school keeps a single central register of staff checks which meets
  • The school’s health and safety policy makes clear staff responsibilities. The school
    records of fire safety and other equipment checks and complies with the regulatory
    Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The school nurse logs all accidents. The school site is
    clean and tidy. It is well maintained.
  • Risk assessments for visits show that members of staff recognise risks to pupils. Heads
    of school check these and the Director signs them off. This contributes to students’
  • The school maintains an admissions and attendance register. The school is careful to
    ensure that they gather all relevant information from the outset, as a number of pupils
    arrive or leave the school during the school year.
  • The school has a written first-aid policy. The qualified school nurse has responsibility for
    first aid. First aiders are trained and there is permanent access to first-aid kits.
    Compliance with regulatory requirements
    The school meets all of the regulations in Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the Independent Schools
    Standards that were looked at by the inspector.
