A Message from Mr Logue

I hope that you are well and looking forward to the Easter break.  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.

                          All our staff wish you a happy and holy Easter

Feedback from our Year 8 Parents Evening 30.01.14

Thank you for the massive and genuine show of support for St Damian’s and your appreciation of all the hard work that teachers undertake for your children. 77 questionnaires were ‘returned’ and 77 would recommend the school to another parent. This is an overwhelming 100% show of confidence!

Thank you for the many positive comments that I will pass onto my staff, 2 of my favourites being “my daughter is thriving at your school. You do a fantastic job” and “I have 2 happy children coming to St Damian’s. I could not ask for anything more”. My staff and I are resolute in our determination to ensure your child achieves [and exceeds] their potential in a safe and caring environment. Mr Logue
