Ofsted rates St. Peter’s as ‘Good’


St. Peter’s are celebrating after a recent Ofsted Inspection rated the school to be ‘Good’.

Inspector Charalambos Loizou visited St. Peter’s Catholic First School, on Rock Hill, in May and the report states that ‘The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection’ in September 2013.

Parents pay tribute to the work and commitment of staff and ‘believe, rightly, that pupils are safe and secure in school.’

The Inspector praised the school and said that ‘staff are all committed to the core values of the school, which, as you state in the prospectus, promotes a caring, happy, stimulating environment in which pupils of all abilities can achieve their full potential’.

In the Early Years ‘strong provision for Reception aged children provides excellent foundations’ and ‘prepares children very well for Key Stage One’.

The report added that the school staff had ‘been successful in maintaining a strong and stimulating curriculum which promotes British values of tolerance, respect and care in the local community.’

Mrs Clubley said ‘We are all very proud of our school and the report demonstrates the commitment of everyone involved in providing good quality education for the children at St. Peter’s. We look forward to continuing our journey with our families to ensure that this is maintained .’

Bernie Mackie, Chair of the Academy Committee added

‘We are pleased that Ofsted have recognised the work of our leaders and staff in “steering significant changes and improvements” since our previous inspection in 2013 and we have remained a good school. The report validates views of our parents and children and highlights the positive impact of our school’s ethos and core values.’

The school were also inspected by the Archdiocese of Birmingham in March where they also received a ‘good’ rating.
