GRADE 1 - OUTSTANDING
St Chad’s is an outstanding Catholic school because:
• Senior leaders and governors have a shared vision for the school and for excellence in Catholic education. Pupils see themselves and others as having a role ‘We live out our mission to follow the steps of Christ’. Parents feel part of the school community and strongly value the Catholic education it offers
• Pupils are presented with exceptional opportunities in religious education which deepens their understanding and develops their religious literacy.
• Collective worship is reverent and respectful, with a clear message for pupils to take out into their own lives. Prayer is central to school life. Pupils are familiar with the traditional prayers of the Church and are at ease with composing and contributing their own prayers. The school has excellent relationships with its local parish and the parish priest is very supportive and a regular visitor to the school.
