Highlights from Latest Inspection

The pupils at Our Lady's Roman Catholic Primary School clearly love coming to school where most make good progress in their social and academic skills. There is thoughtful and effective provision for pupils with additional learning needs (ALN). The school's vision, 'Growing together in faith, love and knowledge', clearly reflects the aims of the school.

Pupils understand how much staff care for them and there is a feeling of mutual respect between adults and pupils. Pupils contribute well to a variety of groups and committees, and enthusiastically share examples of where their influence has had a positive impact on school life. Teachers plan engaging activities for pupils to make progress in their literacy, numeracy and digital ski...lls.

In the best practice, they provide opportunities for pupils to make decisions about what and how they learn. Provision for pupils to apply their skills in other areas of the curriculum is underdeveloped. All staff collaborate effectively to create an ethos which ensures a key role in promoting effective learning at school.

They are ambitious for pupils to succeed and support them successfully to develop positive attitudes to learning. Overall, pupils make strong progress from their starting points and make good progress with their skills in English and mathematics. Staff have been successful in developing pupils' skills in Welsh, so that by the time they leave Year 6 most pupils are able to speak confidently and use increasingly complex sentences.

Governors know the school very well and fulfil their role as critical friend, asking challenging questions about decision-making, which supports the headteacher in moving the school forward. Parents know that leaders and governors make decisions in the best interests of the pupils.
