RE Inspection

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


The school judged itself to be predominantly outstanding in its Catholic life and RE. The

inspection found that this judgement is fully justified because

• Your children flourish in the school’s secure and happy Christian environment; in the words

of their own motto they are like ‘Little Flowers, growing and giving glory to God.’

• Children make outstanding progress in RE because teaching is always at least good

and very often outstanding.

• Pupils’ behaviour and care for each other are exemplary and reflect Christian values

and teaching.

• Children respond very well to the collective worship they help to provide.

• RE and the Catholic life are very effectively led by the headteacher, senior leadership

team and the subject leader.

• Children do very well because enjoy their learning in RE and have respect for people

of all faiths
