A St Helens school has been hailed as ‘outstanding’ by inspectors from education watchdogs Ofsted.

St Julie’s Catholic Primary achieves a glowing report following its recent inspection.

Teachers at the Brooklands Road school have very high expectations for the standard of work their pupils can achieve, the report revealed, while all pupils, regardless of ability, are challenged to produce their very best across all subject areas.

The report goes on to highlight the high quality of teaching at the school which ensures all pupils are well-motivated and engaged with all their work.

Meanwhile, the attitude to learning and behaviour of all pupils is exemplary, inspectors say.

“Achievement is outstanding because pupils make rapid progress from their individual starting points,” the report adds.

“It also makes special mention that pupils really enjoy going to school, are excited by their learning and all try their very best to succeed.

“Their exemplary attitudes to learning contribute to their high levels of attainment.

“The headteacher supports the school community and regards it as a family.

“She has established a very clear vision for continually raising standards.

“The governing body is very committed to continually improving the school.

“They share the headteacher’s drive to continually improve standards, added the report.

Primaries across St Helens are regarded as some of the best in the country.
