Information on Diocesan Canonical Inspection

Diocesan canonical inspections enable the Church to assess systematically the work of Catholic schools. They also provide an opportunity to support, challenge, evaluate and promote this vital work in the mission of the Church.

Bishop Ellis was last inspected under the Section 48 Education Act in November 2017. You can read the report from this inspection by following the link below.

Bishop Ellis RE Final Report 2018

“The school’s mission statement, ‘I have come in order that you may have life – life in all its fullness’. (John 10:10) is visible and a good expression of the mission of the Church. Pupils respond to their child friendly mission statement, ‘We Love, We Pray, We Learn, We Play’. Pupils feel that staff are there to support them in living out this mission” 

“Bishop Ellis Catholic Primary School is a caring school community which follows its values to ‘Love God; Aspire to be your best; Be honest; Forgive; Care’. It is a warm, Catholic environment where pupils are encouraged to grow in their faith and understanding of their place in the community.”

“The quality of Religious Education was judged to be good. Standards of attainment are either in line with or above diocesan averages.”
