Ofsted Monitoring Inspection Visit
I am pleased to send the letter received yesterday from the Ofsted HMI, Elaine Taylor, who visited the school on 8 May to conduct the monitoring visit following our Section 5 inspection in January. (Please follow the link at the end of this notice).
As you will read, the day went extremely well and the Inspector was impressed with the evidence we presented, the teaching she saw, the students she spoke to and the progress made against the areas highlighted in the report. This time we were given more opportunity to present our evidence and discuss in detail our plans for getting to Ofsted "Good". The HMI will now take on a supportive role as and when we need advice and we have asked her to visit again in the Autumn term following 2013 results. The HMI can decide when we are ready for another full inspection which she can initiate.
Once again, thank you for all the support you have given the school. The visit was very reassuring and we remain committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for all our students.

At St Peter's School every child does matter
It is our strong belief that as educators we can and must make a difference to the lives of the young people in our care. We work to ensure that the School enables its students to maximise their potential whatever their ability, background, culture, belief or disability.
We have high expectations and aspirations for all our students and we work to prepare them fully for the future beyond our school, recognising, nurturing and celebrating individual skills and talents. We provide a happy, caring, stable and orderly environment in which the highest quality of teaching, learning and development can take place.
We have a responsibility to develop confident, competent citizens of the 21st century in a totally inclusive environment. We develop skills to enable young people to make choices about their future.
We maintain a working partnership of co-operation between students, parents, staff, Governors and the wider community. At St Peter's both teaching and non-teaching staff work as a team to ensure that students are the priority and we aim to make every experience one of quality and wherever possible exciting and challenging.
