A Local Authority SEN Audit in June 2023 praised the inclusive ethos of the school, the continuous process of self-evaluation and the strength of quality first teaching ” Inclusive practices have been well embedded across the early years and there appears to be a culture and ethos of inclusion that is interwoven into daily practice at all levels.”
A Pilot Ofsted Inspection in April 2021 during the covid pandemic recognised the school’s clear and ambitious vision and praised leaders for steering the school through covid and providing early help to pupils and families. Behaviour and attitudes and personal development were seen to be strengths of the school.
A Peer Review in November 2022 focussed on the feedback given to pupils to help them understand their next steps in learning. Leaders of other local schools noted the open, deep and reflective questioning used to move learning on as well as impactful subject specific feedback offered in a variety of ways and understood by pupils.
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.
We were graded “Excellent” in our Section 48 inspection on 25th November 2022
The deeply Christian vision powerfully underpins everyone and everything, giving consistently shared purpose to the school’s vocation in living out its Anglican life across two sites as one school.
Confident, comfortable and flourishing pupils with a deep understanding of their moral purpose, tangibly moulded by the inclusive Church of England education they experience.
The transformational impact on each member of the school community, helping to overcome any barriers and changing lives for good.
The unwavering contribution of RE to fostering all-embracing respect and natural acceptance of all people, although this level of truly valuing each other is not fully reflected in the school’s vision.
The reciprocal relationship with the parish church which closely binds school and church together as a missional community with worship as its heartbeat.
