We are delighted to announce that we have secured the prestigious Investors in People award at the Silver level. This is an extremely rigorous process that analyses our staff’s performance and standards against a strict framework of criteria. Only 5% of all organisations achieve the Silver award. There are nine indicators that the award benchmarked OBA against and it is outstanding that we were above the industry average for all nine indicators. We are particularly strong at ‘leading and inspiring people’, ‘managing performance’ and ‘delivering sustainable success’. It is also testament to the fantastic OBA teamwork which delivers excellent provision and outcomes to our youngsters. Congratulations to all our staff members on this fantastic achievement.
