To Love and Serve
At All Saints Catholic College, our mission is to put Christ at the centre of our community, to
lead everyone on a personal journey based on the teachings and values of Jesus Christ.
We aim to provide opportunities to nurture and develop the Faith handed down to us by the
Catholic Church. In serving God, and one another, we encourage everyone to fulfil their
potential and realise their aspirations.
Judged OUTSTANDING (Full Diocesan Inspection 2018)
All Saints continues to be good (Ofsted 2017)
Message From the Principal
We are so very proud to be able to report in our June newsletter that we are officially graded Outstanding by the Diocese of Leeds! This is a very rigorous process that in many ways mirrors a full Ofsted inspection.
Throughout the Inspection, there is a focus on Collective Worship, Religious Education and Catholic life. The inspectors were deeply impressed by our RE results which are amongst the highest in the Diocese. Incidentally, the Diocese of Leeds is over 400km² and covers 86 parishes.
The Inspectors very much wanted to know about our plans for college improvement and how we plan and assure student progression. We were judged on how we served the common good and promoted community cohesion. College governors came under close scrutiny also and were found to be instrumental in the strategic planning and support for the College. I am just going to take the opportunity to put in a few selected quotes from the report.
‘Pupils like and value their school where pupils from different cultures and religions are able to be part of this Catholic community, living daily together as one happy community. Pupils appreciate the benefits of belonging to All Saints Catholic community and, actively participate in the school’s mission. Pupil behaviour is outstanding around the school.
‘The school‘s behaviour for learning (BfL) and SEN department consists of a committed team who work very effectively to ensure that all pupils are included and their needs addressed.’
‘Leaders and Governors are fully committed to the Church’s mission in education. They undertake their respective roles with energy and enthusiasm and see the continued development of the Catholic life of the school as the number one priority.’
This is all fantastic news for the College going forward.
We are full in terms of our student population in Year 7; we will be full also within the coming Year 7 and have a waiting list and our new premises are very nearly completed. As we approach the end of the year, we are really excited for the future. Team All Saints is on its way – onwards and upwards!
