From time to time schools undergo an inspection from Ofsted. During this inspection Ofsted Inspectors assess how the school is performing in regards to meeting the children’s, staff’s and communities’ needs.
On the 14th and 15th of January 2020 this school received a visit from Ofsted who undertook a two day inspection. This is the first inspection the school has received since becoming an Academy. The previous inspection having taken place in 2009.
The following are some highlights from our Ofsted Inspection Report:
‘Children in the early years make a strong start.
Pupils told the inspectors they feel safe in school. Parents are very positive about the care their children receive.
Staff are determined to do their very best for all pupils…’

As a church academy school, we have an additional inspection which is carried out by a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools) team.
The following are some highlights from our 2019 SIAMS Inspection Report:
‘ The biblical basis of the school’s vision has a clear impact in all areas of school life. It is transformational and enables all members of the school community to flourish.
Support for the mental health and wellbeing of all stakeholders is exceptional. Care and support is both practical and compassionate and ensures both adults and pupils can thrive in relationships based on Christian love and hope.
Pupils are inspired by RE and use their knowledge to think critically. They are confident in discussing their religious beliefs and can reflect on how issues may affect them personally.
Pupils are articulate and reflective learners, they are eager to share their ideas and opinions openly and honestly, relating sensitively to each other whatever their race, gender, faith or disability.
Leadership is RE is exemplary. It is inclusive, proactive and extends pupils understanding of different world faiths and cultures. ‘
