Ofsted and SIAMS Inspection Reports
Below is our Ofsted Report.
Here is our most recent Ofsted Report from May 2019. We were delighted to be awarded a grading of 'good' in all areas. We were previously 'outstanding' but that judgement was from 2011, and the inspection framework was very different then.
We are delighted that Ofsted have acknowledged that we are a good school and provide an excellent education for our children who feel safe and enjoy coming to school.
Thanks to our amazing staff, children and parents who have helped to make our school such a great place to be!
All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the Church of England Education Office's framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005. The SIAMS Evaluation Schedule sets out the expectations for the conduct of the Statutory Inspection of Anglican, Methodist and ecumenical Schools under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.
SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school's Christian vision on pupils and adults. Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles appropriate to, and reflective of, their particular context in order to be distinctively and effectively Christian in their character and ethos.
The Evaluation Schedule has one inspection question: how effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?
This is explored through seven strands:
- Vision and Leadership
- Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills
- Character Development: Hope, Aspiration and Courageous Advocacy
- Community and Living Well Together
- Dignity and Respect
- The impact of collective worship
- The effectiveness of religious education
