A report from The National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools says the school’s Christian values are securely embedded in all aspects of the school and impact ‘very positively’ on the school’s provision and outcomes for pupils.

It says the school has strong, successful and effective partnerships with parents, the local church and the wider community.

Pupils are described as displaying ‘exemplary behaviour’ and a caring, respectful ethos which is celebrated by the awarding of Random Acts of Kindness certificates.

“The impact can also be seen in the high level of quality provision of care and support provided by the school for all pupils including vulnerable children. This care and support also extends to parents.

“All children are made to feel they can achieve their best and the school’s quality provision, based on its Christian values impacts very positively on pupil achievement.”

The report says the impact of collective worship on the school community is ‘outstanding’. Worship is central to the life of the school and the promotion of its Christian values and ethos which link to everyday life and learning in the school.

The inspectors say the effectiveness of leadership and management of the school as a church school is also ‘outstanding’.

Well-developed monitoring and evaluation strategies are used accurately to evaluate the effectiveness of the school’s provision and performance, and correctly identify development needs.

The governors’ ethos committee is ‘very pro-active’ and leadership at all levels is actively encouraged throughout the school with high priority given to promoting opportunities for staff to prepare for future leadership in church schools, and staff willingly take advantage of these opportunities.
