Section 48 Inspection Information
A Section 48 Inspection was carried out on the 9th February 2017.
Inspectors identified the following key points:
St Peter and St Paul School is a good Catholic school.
Pupil behaviour throughout the inspection in classes and around the school was exemplary. Their engagement with the inspectors was of a high order. They presented as friendly, articulate pupils who clearly love their school.
Pupils are conscientious in their roles, knowing that they are contributing to the harmonious running of their school and they are given many opportunities to develop spiritually.
The pupils’ response to, and participation in, the school’s Collective Worship is good. They have a sound understanding of worship in which they participate well, sing joyfully, reflect in silence and pray confidently.
The Headteacher is a very dedicated leader who has developed a multi-talented Religious Education team, thereby tapping into the strengths of individuals. She is to be commended for the way she serves the school community and develops other members of staff in their roles.
There was a very good level of parental questionnaire responses with almost 100% positive responses. As one parent wrote, “Fantastic support and warm school. Staff always helpful and friendly,” and another commented, “I am a practising Catholic and a very busy mum. I try to help my children pray and know that the school is doing an excellent job to bring up and develop pupils within the Catholic faith, so I know I am being assisted.”
