Here are some of the highlights from the school OFSTED report.

Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is actively encouraged, particularly through the Christian ethos of the school.

The strong, shared vision of the headteacher has helped to unite her team after the amalgamation of the infant and junior schools. 

The headteacher, supported by her extended leadership team and governors, has established a positive ambitious culture within the school. As a result, pupils thrive. One parent said, ‘The headteacher is an asset to the school. She has made it grow and achieve in ways I never thought possible!’

Pupils come into school with smiles on their faces. This is because they see it as a calm, safe haven where they feel valued as individuals.

Leaders have driven forward rapid improvements in teaching. As a result, most pupils make good progress and achieve well in relation to their low starting points.

The large numbers of vulnerable pupils with complex needs are catered for exceptionally well at Leigh St Peter’s Primary. Staff go the extra mile to ensure that they make good progress.

The primary school physical education and sport premium is used well to promote active lifestyles. Sports clubs abound, with plenty of opportunities to compete with other schools and within the region where pupils are really making their mark. Pupils benefit from regular lessons delivered by a sports coach and the range of activities has increased significantly in recent times to include activities best suited to the more vulnerable pupils at the school. Staff have also benefited from professional development opportunities, such as improving their skills in the teaching of gymnastics.

Pupils are excited by the learning possibilities within the topics covered, which in turn is leading to good progress across a range of subjects.
