Ofsted & Exam Results

St Peter’s continues to be a ‘good’ school where students feel confident and happy, behave well and are enthusiastic about the extra-curricular opportunities available to them.

That was the view of Ofsted inspectors when they carried out an ungraded inspection.

Their routine inspection of a school already rated ‘good’ does not give graded judgements but is to confirm the school remains at its previously judged level. If Ofsted decides a school would now receive a higher or lower grade, a full inspection will take place within 2 years.

Inspectors found St Peter’s students realise that staff have high expectations and want them to succeed. They understand the value of accepting others and are taught to respect differences and there is a welcoming culture in lessons to include those with complex learning needs.

According to Ofsted, leaders have a clear, shared vision to provide every pupil, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), the opportunity to achieve well.

St Peter’s curriculum was found to match leaders’ ambitions and has high expectations of what pupils can achieve. They have reliable systems in place to assess what students have learned and should continue to develop the expertise of staff in this area.

Inspectors also found St Peter’s arrangements for safeguarding are effective with tenacious specialist staff ensuring pupils get the help they need, while the curriculum provides students with important knowledge to make safe choices outside school, including online.

Headteacher Christopher Bennet said: “The report highlights the impact of the positive relationships between the staff, students and parents who know the importance of delivering and engaging in quality educational experiences in a safe environment.”

However, Mr Bennet was also adamant there is still work to do. “Despite this successful report, the staff at SPS know that we must continue to evolve finding new ways to engage our students in learning both within and outside of the classroom as we support our young people to become the successful adults of the future.”

St Peter’s has been part of The Cam Academy Trust since 2016 and CEO Stephen Munday said: “We are absolutely delighted to see the high quality of education being provided at St Peter’s School is strongly confirmed through this extremely positive inspection report.

“We want to ensure that there is excellent education for every single pupil in each of our schools. It is good to see how this is reported as a reality in St Peter’s School. Many congratulations to all the staff at the school who are enabling this to happen.”
