Outstanding again!

St Thomas Church of England School is celebrating its second consecutive “outstanding” report from Ofsted.

The inspectors came to the school at the very end of term in July, almost five years to the day since the previous inspection.

The inspection team were delighted with the school and awarded Grade 1 in all four areas of the inspection. The inspectors concluded that “teaching was exemplary”, “pupils’ achievement was outstanding” and “exceptional behaviour makes an excellent contribution to pupil learning”.

They also commended the work of Mrs Lock, the headteacher, and her senior leadership team as outstanding as well. “The senior leadership team lead the school with compassion and commitment and ensure that all staff and pupils learn and work together in a well-planned and exciting environment.”

The school has just received a letter of congratulations from Sir Michael Wilshaw, Her Majesty’s chief inspector of schools.
He said that the judgement of outstanding means “you are exceptional and significant elements of your work are exemplary.”

Headteacher, Ann Lock, said: “We are extremely proud of our whole school community who have worked so hard during the past five years to achieve another “outstanding” Ofsted report.
