Our latest Ofsted report can be downloaded from this page, you can also access this information on the Ofsted website from Wednesday 29th June 2022

Highlights from our latest Ofsted Monitoring Visit held on Wednesday 18th May 2022 include: 

Our latest Ofsted inspection has judged that we are taking effective action towards the school becoming a good school.  They recognise the impact of the work we are doing to rapidly improve Thomas Becket Catholic School, and I am delighted that we were able to showcase all the good work that is taking place. 

Please see below some main findings of the report:

* Each senior leader understands their area of responsibility.  Senior leaders work together closely to identify exactly what needs to get better.

* Leaders have consistent expectations about how teachers should deliver curriculum.  Teachers follow agreed classroom routines closely so that pupils know what to expect. 

* The newly created inclusion team provides a more consistent approach to pastoral support than previously.  This team considers a wide range of information if they think a pupil needs extra support.  Staff know what to do if they have a concern that a pupil is at risk of potential harm.  Leaders act swiftly in response to these concerns to keep pupils safe.

* Pupils know how they are expected to behave.  Fewer lessons are disrupted by poor behaviour than in the past.  Pupils appreciate being rewarded for their positive conduct, for example with a golden ticket.

* Pupils know about the different pathways they can follow to support their career aspirations. Work to improve the post-16 life-skills programme is progressing well. The programme helps students prepare to live independently.

* Those responsible for governance are well-informed about the school’s key development priorities.  They have taken decisive action to appoint new leaders and increase leadership capacity.
