Section 48 Inspection
St Mary's was last inspected under the Section 48 regulations on 28th & 29th June 2016. The report of the inspection is produced for the Archbishop of Liverpool (Code of Canon Law 804 and 806) and for the governors of the school. The inspectors are members of the Christian Education Department and their associates approved by the Archbishop of Liverpool for this purpose. In a similar way to Ofsted inspections, schools are graded as either Outstanding (1), Good (2), Requires Improvement (3) or Inadequate (4).
In this inspection St Mary's was judged as a Good school. Our own self-evaluation preceding any inspection is always thorough. As can be seen by the Monitoring letter from February 2019, very good progress is being made by St Mary's in ensuring the school maintains, and improves, on the very high standards we hold. See below for the links to the Section 48 report (2016) and the Monitoring visit (2019).
