Ofsted report letter to parents and carers


A Section 48 Inspection of our work as a church school was carried out under the SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) Framework on February 8th and 9th 2018.

The Framework evaluates four core questions:

  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective is the Religious Education?
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?

The school has been judged Outstanding in all four areas.
