Ofsted

At St Mary’s and St Peter’s we strive to provide the best education possible for each child in order for them to reach their full potential.  In our most recent Ofsted inspection in March 2013 we were awarded a ‘good’ grading which we are very proud of.

Amongst many positive comments the report explains that:

‘Behaviour and safety are outstanding. Pupils work hard during lessons. They are helpful and supportive towards each other and in their responses to adults. The school makes exceptional provision for pupils’ personal development.’ 

‘Teaching is good. Activities are well matched to pupils’ learning needs. Lessons frequently fire pupils’ enthusiasm for learning.’

‘Children in the Nursery make an outstanding start to their education.’ 

‘Leadership and management are good. The headteacher and governing body have brought about significant improvements in all aspects of the school’s work, including teaching and pupils’ achievement.’ 

‘Attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is above average by the end of Year 6.’

‘Pupils in the rest of the school make good progress and achieve well. Many disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make excellent progress. ‘
