Ofsted inspected Notre Dame in February 2023. Here are some of their comments about our school:
‘Pupils enjoy coming to school. In lessons, they are enthusiastic learners and work hard’.
‘Adults have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. Pupils behave in a calm and safe way throughout the school. They are polite to staff and each other.’
‘Leaders have designed an ambitious curriculum that helps pupils to build their learning on a wide range of subjects over time.’
‘Teachers check carefully how well pupils are learning and adapt lessons as necessary. They revisit previous learning and help pupils to connect this with new learning.’
‘Leaders identify pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities promptly. They work closely with staff to understand pupils’ individual needs and the best way to support them. Teachers adapt learning effectively so that all pupils achieve well.’
‘Staff are proud of their school and the achievements their pupils make.’
