Ofsted Inspection

Ofsted Logo

Our school was last inspected by Ofsted in March 2022. We were delighted that the inspection judgment was that St. Francis continues to be a good school in all areas.

The inspection team commented that:

  • St Francis Catholic Primary is a calm school. Pupils behave very well. Bullying is not accepted.
  • Expectations in English and Mathematics are high.
  • Staff and leaders are kind, firm and fair.
  • The school works with several other professional organisations to support pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).
  • Across the school, pupils' attitudes to learning and one another are very positive. They develop into mature and considerate young people, who get on well with others.
  • The school has a thorough approach to safeguarding and safety matters.

  • 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.
