Ofst​ed Inspection Date:10th December 2015​​

​Overall Effectiveness: ​Good

​Summary of findings for parents and pupils:​

This school continues to be good.

  • The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the previous inspection. Together with your governors, you have provided strong leadership and the ambition to continue to improve the school. Since your appointment two years ago, you have faced challenges, particularly relating to changes in staffing. However, you demonstrate resilience and optimism and are driving improvements with conviction and determination. The school is now well placed to continue to improve to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to succeed at St Benedict’s.
  • The previous inspection report identified the need to involve pupils in improving aspects of their learning, school life and the wider community. You have acted to widen the impact of the school council’s work. Pupils meet regularly. They make important decisions to enhance their learning and feel included in actions taken to improve their school. 
  • ​You and your governors have an accurate knowledge of the school’s strengths and continued areas for improvement. The school’s action plan and subject action plans drawn up by your middle leaders set out what needs to be improved further. For example, you immediately recognised the dip in standards in 2015 and are taking the necessary steps to tackle this. Although work in books confirms pupils are now making faster progress, you are not complacent and recognise that there is further work to do.​​​

​​Parent View

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school. Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. Ofsted will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when. A screencast demonstrating how to register and complete a survey on Parent View is available on the How to use Parent View page. 
By sharing your views, you’ll be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child's school. Or, if you want to, view the results for any school in England.​
