Department for Education
Many Parents are keen to see how we are performing in relation to other schools. The Department for Education (DfE) Performance Tables provide a reliable and accessible source of comparative information on pupil attainment and progress, absence, workforce and finance. The Performance Tables include percentages of achievement to Level 4 and Level 5 or above in reading, writing and maths and the percentage of expected progress in each subject. You can find the School Performance Tables from the DfE by clicking the link below.

The inspection reviews, evaluates and plans further improvements in the school’s witness to the Catholic faith and Curriculum Religious Education. This process begins with the school’s own self-evaluation. The inspection schedule follows criteria set by the National Board of Advisers and Inspectors.

Key Stage Results
The government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.

We regularly gather opinions from parents and children to evaluate our schools and help to set the direction for the year ahead.
Our Governors make an effort to call into school many times throughout the year. This may be informal or formally, for a scheduled meeting or for a look around. Below are some comments from recent visits:
|Governor||Date of Visit |
|Mrs M Quinn||15 May 2019|
|The pupils were quiet and focused on their tasks.|
|Mr A Woods||14 May 2019|
|Staff were organised and had given much thought as to how the process [of national testing] could be approached in the pupil friendly way.|
|Mrs L Maitland||2 May 2019|
|It was clear walking down the corridor there is a strong religious character to the school.
Children were extremely helpful and were keen to talk about their learning and what they had been doing.
|Mrs C Purcell||1 May 2019|
|The value of learning resources online and offline [could clearly be seen].|
|Mrs R Armstrong||1 May 2019|
|The school has a happy atmosphere and the children enjoy being there. They are interested in what they do and enjoy learning.|
|Mr J Yates||1 May 2019|
|The teacher had a lovely manner with the children and control/awareness of all activities.|
|Mrs J Robinson||30 April 2019|
|I really enjoyed seeing the pupils move and get physical and moving during Fit-4-15. Most of them have great co-ordination!|
|Mrs C Coxon||30 April 2019|
|Dialogue between adult and pupils very focused when dealing with misconceptions which were explained carefully to ensure correct pupil understanding.|
|Mrs M Quinn||30 April 2019|
|A very well planned and delivered history lesson / multi-cultural awareness lesson, a focus on human experience - exploitation - linking with religious and social education - moulding knowledge and sensitive responsibility in pupils' lives and judgements.|
|Mr A Woods||30 April 2019|
|I would like to congratulate staff for the calm and caring way they approach all aspects of school life. My visit produced evidence of children who feel secure in themselves, who enjoy life and learning and who are offered an impressive range of experiences up and above the school day.|
|Mrs J Robinson||30 April 2019|
|All children were very confident and happy to chat about the books they were reading and the stories.|
