OFSTED Inspection

St. Teresa's Catholic Infant and Nursery School in Southport had an OFSTED inspection on the 6/7th of February. HMI was most impressed on seeing Y2's weekly chess session in action. They were all engaged, concentrating and enjoying the session.

She wrote in the report:
"Year 2 pupils also play chess weekly. This allows them to solve problems, think strategically and work in partnership with their classmates. Pupils relish this time." The school is happy to report that it was deemed "good" in all areas which is a big leap from the "inadequate" judgement 15 months ago. Eleanor Davies the Headmistress told us: "Chess has had a very positive impact on our school - as it has in many others I'm sure."
