Inspections

Our school was last inspected by Ofsted in January 2010. We were very pleased that the overall inspection judgment was that our school is a good school, with outstanding features recognised. Please do visit us to see how much our school has improved since then!

Here are some of the highlights of the report, which we believe are still applicable today:

  • A considerable strength is the positive, supportive ethos in which pupils receive high quality care, guidance and support. The school is highly inclusive; staff know each pupil well and monitor their welfare closely. Pupils appreciate this, and report that they feel very safe in school and well cared for. One parent was moved to write, 'The school provided an excellent induction process/period for my child starting into Reception…It is a lovely, personal school with many great qualities and teachers.'
  • Behaviour is consistently excellent, which underpins the school's ethos.
  • Pupils enjoy school. They achieve well due, in no small part, to consistently good teaching and pupils' positive attitudes. Those with special educational needs and/or disabilities are very well supported, so that they make good progress in their personal and academic development. Teachers' high expectations mean that more able pupils have an appropriate level of challenge and they, too, achieve well.
  • The headteacher, staff and governors share a common sense of purpose. There is a strong emphasis on teamwork and a focus on ensuring equality of opportunity, raising standards and accelerating pupils' progress.

SIAMS Inspection

We were very pleased with our last SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) Report which took place in January 2015.

The judgements made were:

  • The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is good at meeting the needs of all learners.
  • The impact of collective worship on the school community is outstanding.
  • The effectiveness of the religious education is good.
  • The effectiveness of the leadership and management of the school as a church school is good.

Some points made in the inspection include:

  • The impact of implicit Christian values is apparent throughout the school, providing a safe, caring atmosphere in which all children can thrive and make above average progress. Parents say their children love coming to school. Attendance is well above the national average, attributable to Christian values such as tolerance, trust and friendship.
  • Collective worship is of a high quality, relevant to the pupils and followed up in the classroom.
  • Governors have shown great commitment to the Christian ethos of the school in the work they have done to enable it to join LACT (now known as the DLAT: Diocese of Leicester Academy Trust).
  • Parents are welcome in school and comment that they feel part of the school's Christian family. There are effective partnerships with the church and the local community. The incumbent and church members are actively supportive as governors and leaders of worship.
