Churches Together in Plymouth (CTiP): Upcoming Events

Cathy Drage, Head Teacher at St Budeaux Foundation Church of England Junior School, is delighted that the recent Ofsted Report, following inspection in December, stated that it is a school that pupils thoroughly enjoy. The inspectors found that the school was deserving of an extremely good Ofsted grade when inspecting it under the new framework, which has only been in place since September 2019. The inspectors recognised that, "The school's values of forgiveness, love, respect and joy permeate the school."  It was also recognised that "warm and caring relationships between pupils and staff contribute to pupils' resolute attitudes to learning."

Cathy is very proud of the children, staff, parents, governors and all others who are part of the St Budeaux Foundation School family.  Its nurturing environment ensures that every child is fully supported academically, emotionally and personally in any way needed. Many thanks to all the St Budeaux Church members who help out with various activities at the school.
