Ofsted Reports

We had an Ofsted Inspection carried out at St Mary and St Chad CE First School on 17th May 2016.  I am delighted to tell you that the school has been judged as a "Good School" which is a confirmation of the hard work and high expectations that staff and governors have for all our children.  The report confirms many aspects of our school that we greatly value.

This is highlighted by the following quotes –


  • The quality of teaching is effective, with some pockets of excellence
  • The early years’ provision stands out as a model of superb practice
  • The pupils behave very well and treat one another with courtesy and respect
  • There is a caring culture in this school. Everyone is aware that children’s safety and well-being are top priorities and understand their duty of care
  • Notable strengths include:

* the quality of teamwork across the school        

* pupils achievement in reading

* the use of the primary sports fund to promote healthy active lifestyles and participation in sport
