Inspection Reports

Our last Ofsted was in October 2014. We were rated Outstanding in all areas. Please click here to view the report.

As a Church of England Voluntary Aided primary school, we have an additional Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS). As of January 2023, we are excellent in all areas including the impact of collective worship and the effectiveness of religious education (RE). You can read it here. Its key findings are:

Inspirational leaders and staff work unceasingly to ensure the Christian vision is deeply embedded throughout the school. This creates a culture of aspiration and hope which transforms lives, enabling all to flourish.

Relationships are profoundly supportive. A palpable sense of a community at peace empowers all to face, and conquer, challenges. Leaders strongly aware of the school's rural context, continually strive to find further ways to enhance pupils' awareness of life in the wider world.

The school community empowers its members to take bold actions to ensure transformation. Pupils act enthusiastically and confidently as agents for influential, positive change.

Religious education (RE) is expertly led. A highly effective, cohesively planned curriculum enables all learners to succeed. Precise, pivotal assessment strategies ensure that pupils are challenged extremely effectively and so routinely surpass expectations. Deeper engagement with biblical text would further enhance this.

Highly inspirational collective worship provides deeply poignant opportunities for reflection, spiritual development and prayer. Meaningful moments to reflect on the meaning and mystery of life nourish and enrich lives.
