Information about this school

Our Lady and St Peter Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School is of average size for a primary school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils, those supported by the pupil premium is average.

The pupil premium is additional government funding provided to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority. The majority of pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is average.

The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is above average. There is full-time provision in the Reception class. The joint headteachers of the school are providing executive headship to another primary school within the Diocese of Middlesbrough.

Until October 2014, they both carried a teaching commitment within this school but this has been relinquished following the restructuring undertaken to allow support to another school. The school meets the current government floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

The joint headteachers are uncompromisingly committed to the raising of pupils’ achievement and have maintained consistent improvement since the last inspection. Their vision for the school is shared by an outstanding governing body and motivates a dedicated and highly skilled staff team. Pupils of all abilities make outstanding progress through the school in reading, writing, mathematics and other subjects and achieve above average results at the end of Year 6.

Children enter the Reception class typically below expectations for their age but progress rapidly and are well-prepared for Year 1, entering with achievement in line with the national average. Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs make excellent progress from their individual starting points. The quality of teaching is outstanding and has improved since the school was last inspected.

Teachers are ably-supported by teaching assistants. Assessment information is very accurately used to shape planning. Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding.

They feel very safe in school. Attendance is above average and has shown sustained improvement. Pupils are punctual to lessons.

The curriculum ensures pupils progress very well in reading, writing and mathematics but is also broad and promotes the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Additional sporting and cultural activities develop pupils’ physical and emotional well-being. The additional funding for sport is well-used.

Whilst middle leaders have been highly effective, they have recently gained senior roles and this has given them an over-large set of responsibilities. They do not always have enough time to fulfil all of these responsibilities. Nearly all marking is of a very high standard but a small proportion does not offer pupils the most complete guidance for how to improve their work.
