Following on from a Section 48 Religious Education inspection last Wednesday 5th June, I am delighted to announce that the inspectors found that, ‘St. Columba’s Primary School is outstanding in providing Catholic Education’. The staff and the children could not be any prouder of the outcome.
A detail report will be sent to school, however during the verbal feedback, the following quotes were said:
“The environment is so inviting and welcoming.’
‘The school environment has grown and developed even further since the last inspection.’
The behaviour of pupils is outstanding and reflects the Catholic nature of the school.’
‘The care of pupils is ‘second to none.’
The staff in this school are exemplary role models.’
‘Teaching assistants are very well deployed;each one was seen being busy and effective and enhancing the learning of the children.’
‘The children are absolutely wonderful.’
“There are no limits in this school” from Oliver Year 2.
The children and the staff know the mission statement and live it out.’
‘Books demonstrate excellent progress; even in Year 6 where no gaps were evident from SATs work.’
‘A range of lessons observed, with the first dance lesson ever seen!’
‘The Catholic faith is like a stick of rock; it runs right through the school.’’
‘Fantastic behaviour management strategies.’
Thank you to each and every pupil, member of staff and governor ; proving yet again that ‘ together we are stronger.’
