A Message from Mr Logue

It gives me great pleasure to announce that our recent Ofsted report can now be viewed here.  Whilst you read it I hope that you feel as proud as I do of the many, many positive comments about both the great children and the fantastic staff.  These 2 key ingredients, children and staff, are what makes St Damian’s so special and such a good place to be.

Only a few years ago St Damian’s was in Special Measures, we then became a satisfactory school and now is officially a GOOD school. This report is simply the next stage of St Damian’s vision to become outstanding !

Can I take this opportunity to sincerely thank the overwhelming number of parents who, through Parent View, supported the school in such large numbers.  This follows on from Parental Questionnaire Returns from parent’s evenings which are almost 100% fully in support of the school.  It reassures my staff and me that you have complete faith and confidence in the school, not only now, but in the future, that promises to be very bright.

There is also a general letter available here.
