Grow through the love of Jesus
On March 6th & 7th, 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.
The curriculum is broad and balanced and contributes successfully to the good progress that pupils make.
Pupils feel safe in school and know how to keep themselves safe.
Attendance rates remain close to the national average. Leaders work effectively with other agencies to reduce the proportion of persistent absenteeism.
Leaders have used professional development and training opportunities within the school and in partnership with other local schools to improve the quality of teaching.
Across a range of subjects, almost all pupils make good progress from their different starting points.
Disadvantaged pupils make good progress due to well-planned interventions. Although their attainment is improving over time, the difference from that of others nationally is still too great.
Teachers occasionally do not give work that challenges the most able pupils. Proportions of pupils attaining the higher standards are not high enough.
Success criteria in the school development plan and in teachers’ performance targets are not sharp or measurable enough to allow the school to hold staff to account for pupils’ achievements.
The local authority provided effective support to leaders and governors, enabling leaders to improve progress and attainment in 2017.
