OFSTED May 2017- On 4th May Ofsted visited St. Joseph’s and carried out a one day inspection (section 8 inspection). We were graded as ‘Good’ which we are very pleased with. The full report is displayed on the school website under ‘Key Information’. The inspector recognised many strengths in our school and these are a few of her comments from the report:

  • Strong and passionate leadership
  • Effective leadership and teaching have ensured that the school’s end-of-key-stage test results are now significantly above the national expected average in all areas reported on.

  • St Joseph’s is at the heart of the local community and links with the church are well established
  • A calm and purposeful learning environment where pupils are safe and happy.
  • Pupils are eloquent, respectful and take great pride in their school. They behave extremely well in lessons and throughout the school day.
  • Pupils are great ambassadors for the school.
