St Ambrose Catholic Primary School

Grow through the love of Jesus

Ofsted Report

In September 2013, St Ambrose Catholic Primary School was inspected by Ofsted.  We have been judged a "Good" school and we are very proud of our success!

This is an extract from their report

"This is a good school.

  • Leaders and managers have successfully raised pupils’ achievement since the previous inspection.
  • Children make a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
  • Between Years 1 and 6, progress is good. By Year 6, standards are above the national average in English and mathematics.
  • Effective professional development and good management of the performance of staff have resulted in good quality teaching and a talented teaching assistant team.
  • The provision for, and teaching of, reading is good across the school. Strategies to improve writing are having a marked effect on pupils' attainment.
  • Behaviour and safety are good. Pupils enjoy school and feel safe. The view of one pupil exemplifies that of others, ‘I don't want to leave this school because I love it'.
  • Parents are very happy with the school. Much is done to involve them with their children's education.
  • The senior leaders supported by the governing body, provide the school with clear plan for securing the school's future improvement."

In November 2011 St Ambrose primary school was inspected by Ofsted. 

They found St Ambrose School to be: 

"….. a warm and welcoming place in which pupils feel safe and secure and there is good support for those pupils needing extra help.

Among its strengths are pupils’ personal development, the curriculum, the care, guidance and support it provides and the effectiveness of the Early Years Foundation Stage."

Following the inspection, the school has continued to move forward, striving to offer quality education within a community that cares.
