RE Inspection

Our last RE Inspection was in November 2017. The report stated:

  • Staff, pupils, parents and governors are proud of this Catholic school and how its diverse community come together in harmony.
  • Collective worship is a strength of the school and pupils are enthusiastic and engaged in a variety of forms of worship that cater for pupils of different ages and experience.
  • The school has a welcoming environment where pupils feel happy, safe and well cared for. They come together from a wide variety of cultures, and backgrounds but show respect and consideration of others in their daily lives around the school.
  • Pupils recognise and celebrate their differences and feel it is important to respect and value everyone irrespective of their faith background.
  • Pupils are enthusiastic and showed an outstanding level of engagement during the celebration of the Eucharist. They took pride in their roles in the choir, or as the instrumentalists, altar servers and readers. All pupils responded well to the prayers and responses of the Mass; singing was joyful, enthusiastic and emotional. The importance of the celebration Mass was evidenced even by the youngest pupils who showed respect and reverence throughout.
