Ofsted and SIAMS


Following our Ofsted inspection in December 2019, we are proud to retain our GOOD Ofsted rating.

Highlights from the report:

  • Pupils enjoy school. They feel safe and say that the school is like a family. Pupils are kind to each other.
  • Many pupils enjoy reading.  The library is a well-stocked and an attractive place to read with a range of high-quality books for pupils to choose from.
  • The values of the school’s Christian foundation are central to school life.
  • The curriculum leads pupils to think about life beyond their community.
  • Children have trusting relationships with the adults around them.
  • Leaders have designed a curriculum that provides pupils with a wide and interesting range of experiences.
  • The school is well known for the quality of pupils’ musical instrument playing and singing.
  • The headteacher is swiftly raising expectations of what pupils can achieve academically.
