The school continues to have Quality Assurance and monitoring visits by the Local Authority, Peer Review partners and the LDBS.
A Local Authority SEN Audit in October 2018 praised the inclusive ethos of the school, the continuous process of self-evaluation and the strength of quality first teaching.
A Safeguarding Audit in May 2019 carried out by the LDBS noted the “strong culture of safeguarding which is embedded across the whole school and across both sites.”
A Local Authority Health Check in October 2019 supported the school’s current grading, recognising the increased % of pupils working at greater depth. The school was praised for its “exciting and rich curriculum offer” and outstanding provision for pupils’ personal development: “Parents are overwhelming in their appreciation of the way that the school goes ‘above and beyond’ to treat pupils as individuals and help them ‘blossom.’”
A Peer Review in November 2019 recognised the strong focus on a, “broad and balanced curriculum with foundation subjects and extra-curricular activities highly valued and a consistency of learning opportunities across year groups”
SIAMS Inspection Reports
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. SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults. This involves looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish.
Our latest Section 48 inspection was on 7th May 2015.
