Due to the Christmas break, we’ve had to wait a little longer for our Ofsted Inspection report to be released. We now have a copy of the letter and will be sending it home with all children today. We are absolutely delighted with the outcome and the feedback we received from the Ofsted Inspector during his one day visit. As a result the school remains "Good". Here’s a snippet of what he’s reported:

“The school has remained a very positive and hard-working place.”
“It is clear that everyone at the school works for the benefit of pupils.”
“A pupil joining St. Bridget’s can be confident that they will be valued, looked after and expected to try hard.”
“Pupils’ pride in themselves is part of the background to their very good behaviour in lessons and around school.”
“Nursery and Reception…provide children with good opportunities and a successful start to school life.”
“I saw teachers skilfully helping pupils to learn.”
“Pupils in different years confidently use the writing skills they develop in English activities in other subjects.”
“The responses to Parent View...expressed very high levels of satisfaction with the school.”
“The leadership team ensures that pupils in the school are properly safeguarded.”
“The school’s determination to keep pupils safe is demonstrated by the wide display of details about safeguarding.”
“Leaders and governors work together for the benefit of pupils.”
“The early year provision in the school is led effectively. Children in the early years learn rapidly.”
“I saw busy and happy classrooms where teachers and teaching assistants were helping pupils to learn successfully.”
