Dear Infant Parents and Carers
I have finally received the published Southwark Diocese Inspection report. I am therefore now able to report that the Infant School were judged to be outstanding in all areas.
I have uploaded the full report on our Trust website: www.stmaryscatholicprimaryschoolstrust.co.uk
under ‘about us’.
Below I have listed the key judgments from the first page of the report.
St Mary’s Catholic Infant School is an outstanding school because:
“ The visionary Executive Head teacher supported by a cohesive, strong group of leaders and Governors and a flexible, intuitive staff, has created a school with a vibrant curriculum and outstanding pastoral and academic care”.
“Strong parish links mean that Parish and school are one family working together to build a visible Catholic presence within the community”.
“Pupils are versatile, co-operative and independent, make choices based on Catholic values and are completely immersed in their faith journey”.
“Parents who are overwhelmingly supportive and appreciative of the Catholic life provided for their children making comments such as ‘’Great staff, Great pupils, Great Catholic values. I love this school,’’ and … ‘’A piece of heaven’’.
A lovely way to end the week! Thank you once again to all those parents who spoke to the Inspectors, to all of you who continue to support and be part of our vibrant learning community, and to our wonderful staff and children who bring our Catholic faith to life on a daily basis. We are truly blessed.
