Quotes from 2020 Section 8 Ofsted Report

Leaders have designed a curriculum that pupils find inspiring.

Staff and pupils share a love of reading. Pupils appreciate their teachers’ enthusiasm when reading stories aloud.

Pupils are keen mathematicians. Teachers use practical apparatus to help pupils understand mathematical concepts. Teachers constantly promote the accurate use of mathematical vocabulary. They regularly check pupils’ mathematical understanding and challenge their thinking.

Leaders hold the same high ambitions for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Staff know these pupils well and adapt lessons effectively.
Consequently, these pupils enjoy the same broad curriculum as their classmates and achieve well.

Pupils take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities and exciting trips. They enjoy a wide range of clubs after school.

Pupils enjoy a broad curriculum that goes beyond academic subjects. Staff provide many opportunities to help pupils develop into responsible citizens

Staff who spoke to me told me that they enjoy working at the school. Morale is high. Staff feel well supported by senior leaders and governors.  They describe working at Holy Family as ‘a vocation to serve the pupils and their families’.

Pupils behave well in and around the school. They are polite, respectful and caring towards each other. Pupils work well together in lessons and are keen to support one another
