St Edmund’s is a GOOD school:
Inspected by OFSTED on 21st – 22nd June 2016

St Edmund’s RC Primary is a GOOD school because:

• St Edmund’s is a friendly welcoming school in which pupils thrive. Leaders have established a culture in which everyone is respected.
• Leaders have successfully tackled all of the areas for improvement identified in the 2014 inspection and the school continues to improve.
• Governors have a better knowledge of how well pupils are achieving and of the quality of teaching. This knowledge has helped them to challenge leaders more effectively.
• Provision for the most able pupils has improved, so this group, which had been floundering for a number of years, is now making good progress across a wide range of subjects. Leaders have also been successful in increasing disadvantaged pupils’ progress.
• Teaching in English, mathematics, science, history, music and physical education is particularly effective. Teachers use assessment well to plan lessons to build on pupils’ skills
• The early years is good. Teaching is challenging and enables pupils, particularly the most able, to make good progress. Children’s levels of development have improved in the last three years and they are well prepared for starting Year 1.
• The school’s work to promote pupils’ safety and welfare is outstanding. It means that pupils have a very good understanding of how to stay safe in a wide range of situations, including when online.
• Bullying, racism and derogatory language are very rare. Pupils work and socialise regardless of age, gender or ethnic heritage. It is a harmonious school in which pupils feel safe and welcomed. Pupils behave well in class and around school. Attendance is above average for most groups of pupils.
• Parents are very positive about the education their children receive.
