Our previous church inspection (SIAMS) in 2015 judged the school to be outstanding. You can view the report here.
Areas that it highlighted for us to work on included:
- Improve opportunities for governors to be more formally involved in the monitoring and evaluation of religious education and collective worship and their impact on the Christian distinctiveness of the school.
- Improve the effectiveness of assessment in RE by ensuring that good practice is shared across the whole school to provide greater continuity of approach.
- Improve the impact of collective worship by involving children to a greater extent in leading the direction in which worship themes are explored.
As a result, we have formed a Christian Distinctiveness and Ethos committee for governors, introduced Understanding Christianity as a scheme of work and regularly assess R.E. We also have a worship council that help us to evaluate and lead the direction of our collective worship.
As a school, we regularly evaluate our provision for children’s education and learning. Our most recent self-evaluation for this available here.
Recently we have been looking at the issue of mental health and how we can be courageous advocates to support others who are suffering.
