We are delighted to share the results of our recent SIAMS inspection. The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) is similar in a way to Ofsted, with all Church of England schools visited regularly to evaluate the key question: How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling all pupils and adults to flourish?

We are proud to report that we received an overall grade of Excellent. We were also judged to be Excellent in the effectiveness of our Religious Education and the impact of Collective Worship. The current framework makes it very challenging for schools to achieve this highest grade.

Our wonderful ethos and environment is thanks to the energy, skills and commitment of our whole school community – staff, parents, children, the Advisory Board, the church and other local people. It’s a huge team effort and we feel so fortunate to be part of such a supportive and caring ‘family’. There is also clearly a great deal of work that goes on behind the scenes to build upon those strong foundations to ensure that children receive the best education and wider opportunities, to flourish and let their light shine as in our school vision.

As part of the process, the inspector looked in detail at seven strands, including the school vision and leadership, the progress of pupils (especially in RE), our relationship with the community, opportunities for all members of the school community to explore their spirituality, and our impact as global citizens. They made many positive comments about the work of the school and its pupils.

A huge thank you to all the hard-working staff at school who care deeply about the children here and strive for excellence every day. And also to the parents and children who spoke to the SIAMS inspector and were so positive about our school.
