Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools Report

Harvest Service

As a Church of England School it is a requirement that we are inspected on at least a five yearly basis. Our last inspection was in December 2019 and rated the school provision as GOOD in all areas.

The new 2023 SIAMS inspection framework can be found here: SIAMS-Framework-September-2023.pdf (ldbs.co.uk)

The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.

Towards this objective, inspectors seek answers to four key 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? (VA schools and academies- as a voluntary controlled school we are not inspected in RE)
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?

Here are the Key Findings:

Based on the school’s Christian values the headteacher and senior leaders ensure this is an inclusive Christian learning community where everyone is able to flourish and grow in God’s love.

The high quality of pupil’s behaviour is evident in their positive, caring choices and actions. They are a strength to each other in times of need, which has been enhanced by the school’s focus on mental health and wellbeing.

Partnerships with the local church, wider church community and the federation have positively impacted on the children’s spiritual development. Collective worship is inclusive and brings together the whole community allowing opportunities for reflection on the teachings of Jesus and how they relate to our lives today.  

Across the curriculum especially in RE, the children value being able to explore ‘big questions’ which help them think deeply and reflect on events locally and more widely
