Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School is a good school in providing Catholic Education:

  • Completing and launching the revised schools’ mission statement to direct and guide school life;
  • Continuing to develop the schools’ self-evaluation detailing areas of strength, improvement and development strategies.
  • The parish pastoral support worker is involved in the Catholic Life of the school.

She is an invaluable support to the school and is outstanding in continuing to strengthen links between home, school and parish.
  • On the day of inspection some of the lessons observed were outstanding.
  • The quality of Collective Worship provided by the school is outstanding. It reflects the Catholic character of the school.
  • Leaders, governors and managers are good with outstanding features in promoting monitoring and evaluating the provision for the Catholic Life of the school and in the way they plan and implement improvement to outcomes for pupils.

Continue to develop Religious Education by:
