Our school's outstanding care for pupils

I was delighted to read today the report from the recent OFSTED Inspection of Our Lady or the Rosary School. I have written to the Head teacher to offer my congratulations to him, and to all the staff and governors on such an excellent report.

OFSTED inspectors don't easily give judgements of “outstanding” and so it is especially creditable to see in the “personal development and well-being section” that the school obtained this judgement overall and that not a single section was graded less than “good”.

I know that parishioners at Our Lady of the Rosary will be delighted to hear this good news about our school. Many thanks to Mr Murphy and the whole team at the school for all their hard work for the children and for the competence and professionalism that has enabled the school to be so highly commended by the inspector.

The report is not yet on the OFSTED website but should be published there soon.
