St Anne’s Catholic VA Ofsted Report – December 2022

“Pupils enjoy learning at this school.  Parents and carers, staff and pupils talk of an inclusive, family atmosphere. One parent, with a comment that was typical of many, said, ‘The school has given their child the best chance to be the best that they can be.’

Leaders have high expectations of all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Pupils behave calmly in lessons. They are positive about their experience of school and describe learning as fun. Pupils enjoy being rewarded for following the school rules of ‘Be ready, be respectful, be safe’.

Pupils say that they feel safe. They do not worry about bullying. They know they can talk to staff if they have any concerns, and that staff will help them. Pupils talk warmly of their relationships with staff. Children in the Reception class trust staff. They eagerly join in with the thoughtfully developed activities that staff have created.

Pupils benefit from wider opportunities. They take part in gardening club, choir and multi-sports club. Younger pupils were performing the nativity at the time of the inspection. Some pupils are members of the school council and the pupil parliament. These pupils help to bring about change in the school.” – Ofsted December 2022
