We have now completed our Ofsted inspection and are looking forward to sharing the results with you in due course. Unfortunately, I am not able to share the details of the Ofsted report until it is published and will not be able to answer questions about its content; this is standard practice. However, as soon as it is available, I shall be very glad to let you have immediate access to it. Ofsted will also write to our students.
Our inspection team have asked me to pass on their thanks to our students. As usual our students were polite and helpful; they did their best in response to all aspects of school life. All visitors to our school are always impressed by our students
Our high expectations mean that we respect each other and that learning is not interrupted. Our behaviour system and uniform expectations are an important part of our school and we are unashamed of the fact that we are strict and that we do not accept anything but the best. Our Catholicity means that love of God and of neighbour is embedded throughout the school and creates a happy and mutually supportive ethos.
There has been a lot of change within the school, including within marking and feedback, data systems, the increased of electronic communication (‘Show My Homework’ and our new school app and web site), further improvements to our pastoral system, the implementation of British values and the prevent (anti-extremism), but staff and students have risen to all the challenges allowing these to be tools for continued improvement.
Many thanks to our students and parents who completed the online survey. Some of the feedback is public and I am able to comment on that; I am extremely grateful for your support and delighted that 90% of our families would recommend us.
I look forward to continuing to work with you in order to build even further upon our successes.
Very best wishes,
Dr S J Hatfield
