St Peter’s Church of England Middle School in Old Windsor has been rated ‘good’ in every category by Ofsted.

The government inspector praised the outcomes for pupils, behaviour and welfare, the quality of teaching and the leadership at the school after a two-day inspection.

Cllr Natasha Airey, cabinet member for children’s services, said: “Congratulations to pupils, staff and parents at St Peter’s.

“This glowing report is a real testament to everyone’s hard work.

“It is not easy to get such a positive report from Ofsted and I am looking forward to seeing further achievements and recognition of progress at future inspections.”

The success follows years of hard work after the school was put into special measures when it was rated ‘inadequate’ during a November 2013 inspection.

The middle school’s head teacher, Andrew Snipp was singled out for having “re-established the school’s Christian ethos. This is now woven into all aspects of pupils’ school life, creating a positive culture for learning.”

The school on Crimp Hill Road, Old Windsor, teaches 204 pupils between nine and 13-years-old.

Lead inspector Caroline Walshe visited the academy in September.

Her report reads: “Strong relationships exist between staff and pupils. Pupils’ conduct is exemplary and ensures strong attitudes to learning.

“Spiritual, moral, social and cultural opportunities are well developed and threaded through the taught curriculum.

“Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are supported well by teaching assistants who ably question and work with these vulnerable pupils in lessons.”
