Diocese gives Catholic school an ‘outstanding’ verdict
A CATHOLIC school for children with special educational needs has been rated ‘outstanding’ by the Diocese of Westminster.
Pield Heath House School, in Pield Heath Road, Uxbridge, received the diocese’s top rating in both categories – ‘classroom religious education’ and ‘the Catholic life of the school’.
Inspectors, who visited the school in December 2014, said pupils’ progress in religious literacy was ‘generally as good as it could be’.
