Mrs Jackson has this week announced her delight at our latest inspection.

The Section 48 inspection was carried out a few weeks ago by the Catholic Schools Inspectorate. A Section 48 inspection is a process carried out in Catholic schools to evaluate their Catholic life, quality of Religious Education, and collective worship.

Inspectors found St Benedicts to be a ‘good’ school, with some ‘outstanding’ features. They judged the life and mission of the school as ‘outstanding’ along with some elements of collective worship.

The school are particularly proud of some of the strengths they found. These included;

  • Leadership of our Catholic School
  • Excellent behaviour
  • Pastoral care which puts the most vulnerable at the heart of the school’s work
  • The care of staff for all the students in their charge and for each other

Mrs Jackson commented:

“We are delighted with our latest inspection report. We have already considered the recommendations made in the report and will continue to work to the highest standards.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank staff, parents and governors. All of whom made a positive contribution to the inspection. My biggest thanks goes to our students who were incredible and did us all proud.”

“I am delighted that we received such complimentary feedback about student behaviour.”
