School Data Dashboard
Ofsted's School Data Dashboard complements the Ofsted school inspection report by providing an analysis of our school's performance over a three-year period
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
• 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
