St Mary's Junior school last had a formal visit from Ofsted in 2015 where the school was judged good. See below for the attachment of the report and find more here.
In addition, following our Church School Inspection in June 2014, I am delighted to tell you that St Mary’s has been judged as an Outstanding Church School and that all four core areas were also judged as outstanding:
- How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the need of all learners?
- What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
- How effective is the Religious Education?
- How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?
The result of this report gives us a chance to celebrate all the hard work and commitment of the staff and governors to continue to strive to improve the school and to provide the best possible experiences for all pupils. It would of course not be possible without the amazing support given to the school by parents, other relatives, friends and the community as a whole, which was also recognised in the report. And last but by no means least, the commitment of the children in developing St Mary’s as one family, as well as the pride they take in both their own and other’s achievements. As the inspector quotes in the report, ‘We are all part of a big family here’ and ‘We’re a team’
I would like to end with a message from the inspector herself, ‘Could you also say a huge ‘thank you’ to your super children, great staff and governors for making the inspection day so enjoyable.’
The report can be seen below as an attachment.
