Ofsted said: 


"Next steps for the school leaders and those responsible for governance should ensure that:

  • teaching in all foundation subjects is at least good, and enables pupils to make strong gains in the knowledge and understanding of those subjects
  • leaders provide the necessary guidance to their colleagues and effective checks on the quality of the teaching in foundation subjects."

Ofsted School Inspection Reports

Our most recent RE Inspection was in October 2016. The inspection found the school to be OUTSTANDING. 


It stated that ''All members of the school community value, respect and contribute to St Alban’s outstanding Catholic life which is a constant focus of school planning, and a reference point in determining attitudes and behaviour.''


''Collective worship is at the heart of school life and celebration, with pupils playing a full and enthusiastic part in its planning, delivery and evaluation. The quality of teaching in RE is consistently good and often outstanding, and is reflected in pupils’ excellent attainment and progress, their spiritual and moral development and enjoyment of their learning.


''The newly-appointed headteacher and leadership team has made a strong and confident start in building on and developing the school’s comprehensive programme of review and evaluation to ensure that strengths and areas for development are accurately identified and addressed, and that excellent and effective leadership is maintained and carried forward.''



In order to improve the school should:

In their action planning for Catholic life and RE school leaders should focus on new initiatives clearly linked to self-evaluation.
