Ofsted Inspection

Ofsted Logo

Our school was last inspected by Ofsted in March 2019. We were delighted that the inspection judgment was that St. Francis continues to be a good school.

The inspection team commented that:

  • The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the previous inspection.
  • The Christian ethos of the school strongly underpins its values, which are evident across the school.
  • Standards of behaviour are exemplary and relationships between adults and children are based on mutual respect.
  • Leaders have established an atmosphere which is exceptionally calm and welcoming.
  • Pupils are happy, confident and eager to learn. They enjoy coming to school.
  • Children who start their education at St Francis in Reception quickly begin to make increasingly strong progress from different starting points.
  • Pupils have a good understanding of how to stay safe online, both within school and at home.

Religious Education Inspection

Our last RE Inspection was in November 2016.

The inspection report commented:

  • The provision and outcomes for pupils in respect of spiritual and moral development are outstanding.
  • Collective worship and vocational development are good.
  • Pupils’ response to, and participation in, collective worship is very good.
  • Through strong leadership Christ has rightly been brought back to the centre of the school and is now the focus of all school life.
