Ofsted & SIAMS Reports


OFSTED is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are responsible for inspecting and regulating schools, pre-schools, nurseries, and any services caring for children and young people, as well as those providing education and skills for learners of all ages. 

The school received a short inspection by Ofsted in February 2022. The visit was the second short inspection carried out since the school was judged to be good in February 2013. The school continues to be good was the inspection judgment.

We are proud of our school and the judgement given by Ofsted. The reason the school continues to be good is:

  • Leaders are aspirational for pupils. They plan carefully for the attributes they want pupils to develop.
  • Leaders have developed a curriculum that is ambitious and well organised.
  • Pupils are proud of their school.
  • Pupils say that they all look out for each other. The school is a happy and caring place to work and play
  • Teachers have high expectations of what pupils can achieve. Pupils rise to these expectations.
  • The behaviour in and around school is exemplary.
  • Parents and carers are positive about the ethos and culture that leaders have created.
  • One parent commented that the school is, 'a nurturing environment where children are happy and look forward to going to school every day'.
  • Leaders have prioritised safeguarding pupils.

Please see the report attached below.


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. Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles appropriate to, and reflective of, their particular context in order to be distinctively and effectively Christian in their character and ethos. SIAMS inspectors therefore do not look for a set template of what a Church school should be like, but rather take the particular context of the school into account and base their evaluation on the outcomes rather than the process.  

" The Christian values of love, trust, forgiveness, friendship, peace and respect are embedded and at the heart of life in this church school. "

"There are strong partnerships with parents who appreciate the way children bring home the Christian values they are taught"
