RE Inspection Report

In November 2013 we had our Section 48 Inspection.

This is what the inspector said: 'This is an Outstanding Catholic primary school.'

  • The school’s new mission statement ‘Jesus is at the centre of all we do and say’ is known and lived out effectively by all the children.
  • The pupils play a very active part in the life of the school. They enjoy roles of responsibility. Behaviour is exemplary.
  • The extent to which pupils benefit from and contribute to the life of the school is outstanding.
  • Pupils are stimulated to learn in RE lessons. Their teachers have very good subject knowledge.
  • The quality of Teaching and Learning in RE is good with some outstanding aspects and none is inadequate. High quality teaching assistants enhance the provision.
  • Leadership and governance are outstanding. The senior leadership team have guided St. Joseph’s through a very challenging period of transition. They have been effectively supported by an able governing body. Together they have a clear vision for the future.
  • There are strong links between the school and the parish. The Parish Priest is a regular visitor to the school, taking a keen interest in all aspects of school life both as Parish Priest and as school governor.
  • Parents think highly of St. Joseph’s School. They are justifiably proud of it.
  • Teachers lead worship with enthusiasm and skill. The children listen with interest and reverence.
  • The staff and governors of St. Joseph’s school meet all statutory and canonical responsibilities.
