Ofsted - November 2023
We are delighted to share with you, our Ofsted report following our inspection on the 7th and 8th November.
You will see from the report that the inspectors have graded our school’s overall effectiveness as good, with outstanding judgements in four out of the five areas.
You will be pleased to know that, as usual, our pupils were an absolute credit. They spoke to inspectors with honesty and confidence about life at St Catherine of Siena Catholic Primary School.
We are really pleased that the inspectors noted many strengths.
They noted that the progress the children make is 'Phenomenal', and we were delighted they recognised that we have developed an ambitious and challenging curriculum for all our pupils who succeed highly; that there is a strong focus on developing a love of reading; and pupils’ behaviour is exceptional and that pupils receive excellent support. We are so happy that the inspectors recognised what makes St Catherine of Siena Catholic Primary School so special.
Thank you for your continued support.
Our last Section 48 Religious Inspection from the Diocesan Education Service was in October 2021, where we were judged to be a good Catholic school.
