St Peter’s ‘Good’ Ofsted
Our Ofsted inspection earlier this year saw a judgement of “good” which was recognition for the education provided at St Peter’s. The children are a credit to our local community and throughout the inspection they communicated with the lead inspector to tell him about the wonderful experiences that occur on a daily basis.
The staff, governors and children are delighted with the outcome of the inspection, and feel it reflects the hard work the school community puts in every day. We know that our children work hard and come to school looking smart and keen to learn and this is acknowledged in the report.
As a school, we are always looking to improve and will be working on the areas for improvement outlined in the report. Our motto is ‘unlocking the keys to achievement within the love of the Lord’ and we strive to be the very best school possible. As the Nene Education Trust grows, it gives the staff and the children valuable opportunities to develop and grow within the local community working alongside other professionals.
In his report, Ofsted’s John Lawson noted St Peter’s “has a positive supportive ethos in which pupils can thrive and develop as individuals” and described the school as a “calm, orderly, well-organised place to learn”. Parents spoke of the “friendly and approachable staff and the positive gains their children are making in their learning.” Also the report states that “the majority of pupils, including those who are disadvantaged, are making good progress in reading, writing, mathematics and other subjects.”
Our children understand the importance of treating each other with respect. They are proud of their achievements and enjoy coming to school to learn. I would like to thank all the staff, children, parents and wider community for their continued support.
