Inspectors have praised a Thirsk school that is “built on love” as they rated it “good” in all areas.

Ofsted says All Saints Catholic Primary School in Thirsk – which is part of Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust (NPCAT) – is a place where “everybody is made to feel welcome”.

“Highly effective leaders have led the school through a period of rapid change,” their report says. “The trust has provided training and support to improve every aspect of the school since it opened as part of the trust.

“The curriculum is ambitious and well thought through. Pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), learn well. Children in the early years get off to a strong start.”

Delighted executive headteacher Paul Conway said everyone at the school is “immensely proud” of the report.

“We are grateful to the knowledge and expertise from our trust team and governors for supporting us in our ambitions to build a faith school Thirsk can be proud of,” he said.

“We are also grateful to our loyal families for being a steadfast support to us throughout this period of change.
