Headteacher - Mrs. Michelle Ravey
Welcome to our school. I have now been Headteacher here for nearly 4 years I am so proud of the achievements of all the children and staff over this time. The school continues to improve and we are all committed to doing the very best for the children in our care. Our latest HMI led OFSTED Inspection (March 18) is overwhelmingly positive and recognises and celebrates the progress towards a good grading that the school has made.
'You and your leadership team provide a stimulating curriculum which draws pupils in and develops their love of learning. You enrich pupils' experiences with a wide range of trips and visitors to the school. The high standard of pupils' artwork reflects the benefits of working with artists in residence.'
(OFSTED March 18)
In an educational climate of raised expectations and more challenging SATs we are doing our very best to make sure all of our pupils reach the expected standard. One of the things I am immensely proud of is the way in which parents are fully involved in the life of the school. Throughout this year I will be reinforcing how important it is for children to complete their homework and are heard read at home. I know you will continue to support the school with this. We are also applying for the Leading Parent Partnership Award to find even more ways to involve parents in their child's learning.
I believe in an education where all children can be happy, achieve well and know they are safe and secure. As part of the catholic life of the school we try to live out the gospel values and treat everyone as we would like to be treated ourselves.
After love the next best thing we can give our children is self confidence. The effects of having a positive self- image, high levels of self-esteem can never be underestimated and it is my aim to ensure that all the children at Holy Spirit believe in themselves and know they can be whatever they want to be. Through a rich and vibrant curriculum,underpinned by real life experiences, we aim to make Holy Spirit a fun and exciting place to be where every one can be the very best they can be.
