SIAMS Report

We are very pleased to be a Church of England School and we are passionate about giving all of our children, families and staff the opportunity to learn, live and work in an environment that offers each individual love, respect and trust.


Our most recent SIAMS inspection acknowledged the following:

  • The clear vision strapline ‘Live, learn and love in faith, respect and trust’ describes the ethos of this very successful church school. Here pupils are taught their behaviour and attitudes to others are based on the example of Christ, to care for those who are less fortunate and who need help, both near and far. They have learned to do this through active fundraising, prayerful discussions and thoughtful classroom actions.
  • The strong and effective partnership between the local church community and the school has resulted in pupils seeing first-hand the shared values and vision between the two. This has supported relationships built of trust and mutual understanding, enabling pupils to question, explore and debate faith issues with a high degree of confidence and genuine interest in deepening their levels of theological understanding.
