Ofsted praises school with silent corridors and high exclusion rate

Inspectors have praised a school which uses silent corridors and excludes a “relatively high” number of pupils, labelling its behaviour policies as “outstanding”.

In a move likely to spark further division between supporters and critics of no-excuses behaviour policies, Ofsted has issued Magna Academy in Poole with a glowing report following an inspection in December.

Inspectors, sent in following concerns over “high levels of pupil movement”, even claimed that some pupils with special educational needs feel “reassured” by the school’s use of silent corridors.

But the report, which follows concerns over mixed messages from the watchdog over behaviour, has been criticised by an inclusion expert, who accused the watchdog of condoning “extreme” behaviour management tactics.
