Ofsted Logo

Our school was last inspected by Ofsted in May 2023. We were very pleased that the overall inspection judgment was that St. Chad's is a good school with outstanding personal development.

Some of the comments in the report included:

  • Leaders have high expectations for all pupils.
  • Pupils know the importance of being a good person. They help others in the community. Pupils show kindness and respect to others as a result. Pupils exemplify their motto, ‘Christ in our heads, our hearts and our hands’. They say that everyone is loved and welcomed.
  • Pupils’ physical and mental health are taken seriously by leaders. Pupils can discuss their worries and feelings with trusted adults.
  • Leaders are committed to improving the learning experiences of pupils. This is now realised through a well-constructed and ambitious curriculum.
  • Staff are highly skilled in teaching pupils how to read.
  • Leaders have created an inclusive school. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and those who are disadvantaged are well cared for.
  • Pupils have an exceptional understanding about diversity.
