We are delighted that Ofsted recognised the standards achieved and good progress of our children when they awarded us a good rating at our inspection in February 2018.

They recognized that our school is: “Just like one big family with very positive attitudes to learning” and “High expectations”.

SIAMS Inspection Report:

On November 10th 2021, the school was inspected by SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools). We were really pleased that the inspector was able to see and acknowledge so much of the great work that happens in our school, which can be seen in the full report at HERE. We are really proud of the inspection’s findings and are grateful to all the staff for their work and contributions.

The key findings of the inspection include:

  • The strongly Christian vision and values are understood by all. They have tangible impact on adults and pupils, enabling them to flourish.
  • Beneficial and wide-ranging collaborative partnerships enable staff to provide exceptional care for pupils’ progress and character development.
  • Pupils are welcomed, valued and nurtured with highly-impactful and tailored support. They celebrate difference with a developed sense of compassion.
  • Collective worship is well-resourced and valued by all, and key messages have an impact on the daily lives of pupils.
  • Religious education (RE) is well-planned, constructed and resourced, enabling pupils to experience a variety of engaging activities and to ask meaningful and personal questions.

The school has been asked to develop the following areas:

  • Increase opportunities for pupils to take action in order to develop their understanding of social justice.
  • Develop further leadership roles for pupils within collective worship.  
  • Continue to develop and embed the new RE curriculum and assessment opportunities.

SATS Info

In 2016 the way in which children are assessed at the end of key stage 1 and Key Stage 2 changed.

Children are now tested to see if they have reached the expected level for their age. We are pleased with the results since our year 6 cohort had one third, and our Year 2 had 40%, of the pupils with significant Special Needs.
