Church of England Junior School

Excellent rating by SIAMS

The final report following out recent church school inspection has now been published.

I am really pleased to be able to share with you the report on our recent SIAMS (church schools) inspection. The school has once again been graded as excellent in all of the seven strands and our provision for RE. This is an amazing out come in the light of the increased rigour of the new framework and reflects the hard work of all the staff in school.

The key findings are that:

  • St. Mary’s Christian vision underpins its work as a highly distinctive church school. It drives the work of school leaders and has a transformational impact on the lives of its pupils and their families.

  • The rich, broad curriculum strongly supports the academic and social development of pupils exceptionally well.

  • The skilled and determined leadership of the headteacher, strongly supported by the school’s staff and governors, has created a vibrant Christian community where pupils and adults flourish, despite any challenges encountered.

  • High quality provision for religious education (RE) and collective worship strongly contributes to pupils’ spiritual development. This is further strengthened by the extremely supportive partnership that has been established between the local church and the school.

May I once again thank you for all the support that you give the school.
