Inspections

Our school was last inspected by Ofsted in March 2014, when we were delighted to be judged as a good school in all areas.

Here are some comments from the Inspection Report:

  • All groups of pupils achieve well. They make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics.
  • Teaching [...] is now consistently good throughout the school, and occasionally outstanding.
  • Teachers have good relationships with pupils, and constantly promote interesting and stimulating learning across a range of subjects.
  • Pupils' behaviour, attitudes and relationships with each other are good.
  • [Pupils] are enthusiastic learners, have a genuine love of reading, and work well together in small and large groups.
  • The determined and decisive headteacher leads from the front.
  • School leaders have been rigorous in promoting better teaching.
  • Pupils are well cared for and safe.
  • There is a positive learning environment in the school which helps the excellent promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.
  • Pupils enjoy coming to school. They have great pride in it and in the school's achievements locally, especially in sport.

Religious Education Inspection

Our last RE Inspection was in September 2012. The inspection stated:

"In its self-evaluation the school judges itself to be an outstanding Catholic school where 'religious education, based on the Catholic faith tradition, permeates, influences and sustains the whole education process and purpose of the school.' In terms of its whole school vision and commitment to promoting all aspects of Catholic life and religious education this judgement is justified. Teaching, learning and pupil attainment and progress in RE are all judged to be good. These judgements are based on sound evaluation and analysis and therefore are also justified. To drive forward the process of self-evaluation, to which the school leadership team is committed, it should continue to develop formal procedures to assess the quality and impact on pupils of its Catholic life and religious education."
