Leaders will now work on the identified areas for further development as part of our continued journey of improvement.
As a church school we are also inspected by the Church of England under the Statutory Inspection of Anglican, Methodist and ecumenical Schools (SIAMs). Here are some of the key findings:
- The vision promotes a cohesive and supportive culture which lives out its values of friendship and community enabling all to flourish.
- Collective worship has a significant role in the life of the school creating a strong community living out its vision to be a light on the hill.
- There are examples of good practice which develops spiritual awareness across the curriculum but the approach is not consistent.
