We were very pleased with our last SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) Report which took place in January 2015.
The judgements made were:
- The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is good at meeting the needs of all learners.
- The impact of collective worship on the school community is outstanding.
- The effectiveness of the religious education is good.
- The effectiveness of the leadership and management of the school as a church school is good.
Some points made in the inspection include:
- The impact of implicit Christian values is apparent throughout the school, providing a safe, caring atmosphere in which all children can thrive and make above average progress. Parents say their children love coming to school. Attendance is well above the national average, attributable to Christian values such as tolerance, trust and friendship.
- Collective worship is of a high quality, relevant to the pupils and followed up in the classroom.
- Governors have shown great commitment to the Christian ethos of the school in the work they have done to enable it to join LACT (now known as the DLAT: Diocese of Leicester Academy Trust).
- Parents are welcome in school and comment that they feel part of the school's Christian family. There are effective partnerships with the church and the local community. The incumbent and church members are actively supportive as governors and leaders of worship.
