OFSTED Inspection update

Dear families,

With the madness and chaos of the pandemic, it is hard to believe that we  had an OFSTED inspection two weeks before lockdown!

I am delighted to be able to share with you the outcome of that inspection.

St Columba Catholic Primary is a GOOD School, which is OUTSTANDING in Personal Development!!!

I really could not be any prouder of our children, our families and our staff. My deepest appreciation goes to each and every one of you.

Enjoy the read!
