What they say about us: 'GOOD' Ofsted January 2015 and 2016 Archdiocesan Reports

 

Ofsted Report January 2015

The following quotations are taken from the January 2015 Ofsted report.

"The enthusiasm and encouragement of teachers inspire pupils to try hard. Interesting and challenging tasks in lessons enable pupils of different abilities to make good progress."

 

"Teachers' marking in books provides very clear guidance to pupils as to how they can improve their work. Pupils are given time to respond to the advice which helps them to move on in their learning. They regularly reflect on how well they, or their working partner, have done."

 

Pupils "are polite and courteous and older pupils act as good role models for younger ones"

 

"Pupils feel safe in school because they know it is secure and say that the adults watch out for their safety"

 

"School data and work in books show that pupils make good progress in reading writing and mathematics throughout the school"

 

In the pre-school and reception class "teachers work well together and have created safe, vibrant learning environments for the children to develop their skills"

 

The headteacher has "built a skilled team of leaders who track individual pupils' progress to make sure none are falling behind."

 

"Primary sports funding has been effectively used to provide more opportunities for competitive sports..."

 

"While the school has a strong Christian and Catholic ethos, it makes sure that pupils of all faiths and backgrounds feel valued."

 

 

 

The quotations below are taken from the latest Archdiocese of Birmingham’s report: St Mary Immaculate RE Inspection 2016

 

The school environment emanates spirituality...most significantly through the happy and respectful atmosphere present in the conduct of the pupils

 

In recent years the school has made progress in particular in the quality of learning, assessment, and the monitoring of RE which are outstanding

 

pupils are eager and attentive

 

Older pupils are exceptional at looking after their younger peers

 

The school is eager to utilise the knowledge and background of the pupils themselves and this is leading to an enrichment in the pupils’ overall appreciation of global citizenship
