St Peter's Primary School in Harrogate has been rated 'Good' by Ofsted inspectors.

Inspectors visited the school, which is part of Yorkshire Causeway Schools Trust, on 12th and 13th March.

And the report has branded St Peter’s a “welcoming and friendly school” where children are taught “an ambitious curriculum” and “enjoy their learning and achieve well.”

Inspectors also found the work of the school to be of a consistently high standard.

Mr Paul Griffiths, Headteacher at St Peter’s CE Primary School, said:

It is privilege to lead a wonderful team of dedicated and hardworking professionals who work tirelessly to provide the very best for children and their families. 

“I am immensely grateful to the whole staff team for all they do. As a school we are very fortunate to have a hugely supportive parent body and wonderful children who help to make St Peter’s a very special place. 

“We look forward to building on the many positives from the recent inspection to continue to improve our facilities and provision for the benefit of all.”

Ofsted commented that children “talk with maturity about a range of issues” and “show empathy and care for each other.”

They looked in detail at the way the school delivers its curriculum and teaches reading, mathematics and foundation subjects including History. 

Inspectors concluded that the work the school has completed on its ambitious curriculum has “had a positive impact in many subjects.” 

St Peter’s is also a member of the Yorkshire Causeway Schools Trust.

Jane Goodwin CEO at Yorkshire Causeway Schools Trust said: 

“This Ofsted outcome is welcomed by the School and the Trust as a representation of the fantastic School that St Peter's is. 

“As a happy and caring environment where everyone works hard together, all children enjoy and benefit from the quality of learning and wider experiences that staff create for them. 

“St Peter's is a shining example of a Yorkshire Causeway school, and I am hugely proud of their achievements.”
