Ofsted Inspection Rating Outstanding
This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

This average-sized Catholic primary school serves a socio-economically mixed area. Almost all pupils are of White British heritage and a very small percentage of pupils are at the early stages of learning English. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and with a statement of special educational need is below average. The school gained recognition by the Basic Skills Agency with Quality Mark in 2006 and has been awarded the Activemark and local authority Healthy Schools Award.
