The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.
The school became an academy in August 2015 with the Romero Catholic Academy, a multi-academy company (MAC). You took up your post as principal in January 2017. St Gregory’s is a caring and inclusive school. Parents and carers say that their children are very happy at school and that it feels like a ’village school in the city’. Pupils say that they are taught to respect and look after one another.
Parents are very supportive of the school and are fully involved in school life. Parents and grandparents are invited into key stage 1 classes every week to read with their children and grandchildren at the start of the day. Parents say that this helps them to support their children more effectively with their reading at home.
The Friends and Relatives of St Gregory’s (FROGS) parents’ group works hard to support the school and other parents. The group has produced a leaflet for parents of Reception class children with frequently asked questions and key information. The FROGS group hosts a stand at the parents’ evenings to answer parents’ questions.
