We are a GOOD School

Our recent SIAMS report is in and we are a ‘GOOD’ school. We are extremely proud of this achievement which reflects the growth of the school over the last few years. A big well done to the children, parents & carers and the whole staff team. Do take a look at the report, it really does show off how ‘GOOD’ we are.


All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the National Society’s framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005. The framework sets out the expectations for the conduct of the Statutory Inspection of Anglican, Methodist and ecumenical Schools under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005 and provides a process for evaluating the extent to which church schools are “distinctively and recognisably Christian institutions”.

Inspection focus

SIAMS inspection focuses on the effect that the Christian ethos of the church school has on the children and young people who attend it. Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles, which reflect their particular local context or church tradition in order to be distinctive and effective.

Quotes from the report

Below are some quotes from the inspectors report:

The newly introduced Christian vision and values permeate the life of the school, have given hope and belief in times of difficulty and increasingly challenge the whole community to become who God wants them to be.

Outstanding, confident leadership has faith in the God-given talents of the individual and provides practical and appropriate support resulting in all-round improvement and growing professional expertise.

Collective worship strongly underpins the school’s vision and values, has inspired pupils to believe they can change their behaviour and make a difference, and is continuing to transform the ethos of the school.

Religious diversity is celebrated affirming St Paul’s vision and values and, with developing confidence and knowledge, is promoted positively in the delivery of Religious Education (RE).
