At Aylward Academy the health, safety and welfare of our students, staff and visitors remains at the forefront of everything we do. We are a 4* British Safety Council accredited Academy and we maintained this score despite a complex and challenging 2 year site re-development.The management of health and safety is not just driven by the site facilities team and I, colleagues have worked extremely hard to create and nurture a positive culture and my thanks to all who support me in my role.
Jonathan Gillard, Principal
As Principal of Aylward, I am so proud of the successes which so many of our students have achieved since we became an Academy.
We were delighted when we received a ‘good’ from HMI/OFSTED in November 2012 but we all realised that there is still a long way to go in our mission to provide outstanding education for all students.
Please remember that if you have any particular concerns or suggestions for the Academy, you are welcome to request to see me personally.
