Religious Education Inspection


Our last Catholic School Inspection, carried out under Section 48 of the Education Act, was in July 2023. 


The report concluded that: 

  • Catholic Life and Mission - Outstanding 
  • RE - Good 
  • Collective Worship (Prayer and Liturgy) - Outstanding


Some comments from the report were as follows:


  • Our Lady’s lives out its mission very well as a Catholic school with Christ firmly at its heart.
  • Catholic social teaching is taught across the entire school curriculum. All staff take responsibility for weaving it into every aspect of school life.
  • There is a powerful sense of community, belonging, and commitment to the mission. The example and personal witness of the head teacher inspire this.
  • The liturgical year and rich pattern of daily prayer drive the rhythm of school life.
  • Meticulous care and attention towards the inward and outward signs of the Catholic school create a dignified and spiritual space to work, learn, and pray.

Our school underwent its most recent Ofsted Inspection in February 2020. Our Lady's Catholic Primary School remains a good school.


As a school community, we are proud of our school and this is reflected in the report. Due to the new changes to inspections and reports from September 2019, reports do not contain all the feedback given by the inspector to governors and senior leaders. Therefore, notes were also taken at the meeting with the inspector and these are also available for you to read.  Please do take the time to look through them. 


We are committed to providing the very best education for all pupils as we continue on our journey ensuring the whole school community flourishes.


Some comments from the report were as follows:


  • Pupils are proud of their school. They are well cared for, respected and valued by all staff.
  • Leaders and staff have high expectations for all pupils, including those with special
    educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).
  • Pupils live up to these high expectations. Pupils behave very well. They work and play happily together. 
  • The early years is a warm and vibrant place for children to learn. Children in the early years make good progress across all areas of the curriculum. 
  • Leaders promote pupils character very well. Pupils have opportunities to see themselves as citizens in the wider world. They are taught how to bring about change and contribute positively to society.
  • Pupils are taught how to keep themselves safe, including when online.
  • Leaders want the very best for all pupils and staff. Governors say that 'this is a school full of joy.'
