It is with great pleasure that we share our excellent accolade by the Diocesan Inspectors just before Easter.
Our children were wonderful ambassadors and a great credit to you, their parents. We are so proud of them, who together with our staff have worked so hard, with dedication to achieve extremely high standards in Religious Education, which has now been truly recognised.
“Pupils’ achievement is outstanding and data shows that achievement is exceptional for all groups including those with significant additional needs, with some pupils making rapid and accelerated progress across all the phases.”
The inspectors made particular reference to the overwhelming positive praise and acknowledgement of all that we seek to achieve on behalf of your children.
“Through high expectations there is a clear and shared vision of the importance of promoting religious literacy among pupils.”
We especially thank those parents who met the inspectors. It is greatly appreciated.
“Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school and express great appreciation of the way their children’s faith life is nurtured.”
The Leadership and Management judgement was significant with praise for our Governing Body with special thanks to those governors who met the inspectors and particularly Fr Fergal.
“The leadership of the head and governors has ensured that commitment to its Catholic identity is evident in all aspects of the work of the school.”
We can never thank our Governing Body enough for their stalwart support and guidance to us all throughout our various developments over many years.
“Governors are fully committed to the school and know it well. Members of the governing body fully understand their roles and responsibilities and are well placed to be both supporting and challenging.”
“The well informed governing body provides a good balance of challenge and support and is active in the life of the school.”
We can indeed be very proud of our whole school community and it is my privilege to be the Headteacher of this wonderful and highly successful Catholic school, as we clearly “live, learn and grow by following Christ.”
