Inspection delivers outstanding rating for village primary

A village primary school has been judged as outstanding following the release of a new report.

The Catholic Diocese of Northampton has given its top rating to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Aston le Walls.

In a recent diocesan section 48 inspection report, it stated: “St Mary’s is an outstanding Catholic school.

“This is because of the outstanding leadership of the headteacher, the religious 
education co-ordinator and the hard work of the whole staff.

“Religious education is at the heart of the curriculum and embedded in every aspect of life at St Mary’s.

“The school’s values and ethos are visibly reflected in the exemplary attitudes and relationships which exist between all members of the community. Pupils thrive in the supportive, caring and nurturing atmosphere the school provides.

“As a result they are confident learners with positive attitudes towards school and genuinely care for each other and all members of the school community.

“Teaching is outstanding overall as are achievements and standards.”

The school is currently rated as good by Ofsted.

Any parents who want to find out more about the school are invited to go along to an open morning which will be held later this month.

The event will take place on Thursday, October 23 from 10am.

For further details about the open day call the school on 01295 660258.
