What have we done in response to Ofsted?

St Peter's was last inspected in 2009 and judged to be outstanding.  Ofsted were very impressed with the quality of the School Development Plan. They asked us to choose one area that we would like as our main focus. We chose ICT to enhance learning.

We have replaced the computing curriculum (two major rewrites since the last inspection as well as constant tweaks) with one that is relevant, cross curricular and pushes standards even higher. We have made internet safety a priority as well as modifying the curriculum to meet the changing needs of the pupils.

We have a very well resourced school in general, but have exceptional ICT resources. We know from Bench marking that we are in the top quartile for spending on this area.

 All resources being cloud based as well as having two lines into the school for increased reliability.

Standards in computing are in line with other areas in the school, which are in turn well above national average.
