SIAMS - Church School Inspection

Our school was graded ‘Good’ in all categories.

I am delighted to be able to share with you the final report, outlining the findings from our recent SIAMS Church School Inspection held on the 6th March 2015. Please click the link above to read the full report.

 The principal objective of a SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.

 Towards this objective, inspectors seek answers these key questions:

  •  How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?

  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?

     “The school’s established Christian values, enables strong partnerships between pupils, staff, parents and the church community. This is characterised by the Christian care that exists for each other within the ethos ‘Agape – to Live, to Learn, to Love, Together’ each day.”

 Please take time to read the whole report as it sets out where we currently are as a Church school. It reflects the huge amount of work that has taken place in the last academic year to move the school forwards. What should be pleasing for everyone involved with the school, is that the report recognises the rapid progress we have made in the last academic year and the positive impact that this has on our pupils.

 “Although the headteacher has been in post a relatively short time, she has rapidly transformed the culture of the school community. Leadership is making a distinct impact on all aspects of school life and relationships within a clear Christian ethos. “

 I would like to thank everyone for their support since my start in September. The improvements that have taken place have only happened because of the full support of the parents, the support of the Governing Body, the hard work of the pupils and the dedication and expertise of the staff and I am incredibly proud of the outcome of this inspection.
