Letter for parents re. Ofsted Report January 2019 from Ms R. Craven, Chair of LGB
'The school clearly proclaims the values that guide its mission. These values, which derive from Catholic virtues and include respect, truth, love and service, are
exemplified by staff in what they say and do. During their time at school, pupils learn how these values can steer and comfort them in their lives and help them to grow into compassionate and responsible members of society.'
'St Patrick’s Catholic Primary is a very welcoming school where staff go out of their way to let pupils know they are valued. Pupils are encouraged to do their best, help others and to seek help when they need it. They know that adults will always have time to talk with them about their interests and to listen to any worries they might have.'
'The behaviour of pupils is good. Their conduct in lessons and when moving around the school is calm and orderly.'
'Good leadership is the driving factor behind the judgement of good early years provision. This inspection found that clear-sighted leadership and mostly effective teaching mean that children are happy and safe at school.'
'Staff maintain good communication with parents. There are many opportunities for them to come into school to talk with staff and find out how their children are getting on. These positive relationships and flow of information between home and school help parents to support their children’s learning at home.'
