Key Findings

This is an outstanding school because from very low starting points all pupils make excellent progress, both academically and in their personal development.

They thrive in the happy, secure and welcoming environment. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is excellent and parents and carers are highly appreciative of the work of the school. Holy Name Roman Catholic is an inclusive school in which pupils learn harmoniously alongside others.

Their achievement is excellent so that by the end of Year 2 and Year 6, their attainment in reading is above average and their attainment overall is broadly average and rising. Social and economic barriers to learning are systematically ta...ckled. Hard-to-reach families are sought out, embraced and encouraged to succeed.

The school is a haven and a hub of the community. Its work has a very positive effect on families and children. Outstanding teaching is evident in all areas of the school.

Learning moves at a fast pace, tasks are challenging and perfectly matched to different pupils' needs and abilities. Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs make excellent progress, as do those for whom English is an additional language. Assessment is good, but just occasionally, targets set for pupils are not consistent and clear for them to know exactly how best to improve their work.

Pupils' behaviour is exemplary and attitudes to learning are excellent. Pupils love school, work extremely well together and persevere with tasks, redoubling their efforts when work is hard and joyously celebrating their successes and those of their classmates. The thoughtful and dynamic leadership of the headteacher provides a very clear vision for improvement which is shared by all staff and members of the governing body.

Self-evaluation procedures are rigorous and expert professional development has improved teaching from good to outstanding. The rich and rewarding curriculum enhances learning and raises aspirations.
