Dear Parents and Carers,
Following our school’s recent Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) inspection, we are delighted that the school has received an overall ‘Good’.
The school’s distinctive Christian character and the effectiveness of the leadership and management of the school were both judged good. The third element of the inspection, namely the impact of collective worship on the school community was judged outstanding.
In summary, the inspection noted that
- “Christian values make a strong contribution to the school’s distinctive Christian ethos and are increasingly making an impact on outcomes in the children’s learning.
- Collective worship has a significant impact on the children’s understanding of Bible stories and how they can be used to guide their actions.
- The commitment of the leaders and managers, including governors, in promoting the Christian ethos ensures that it has made good progress since the previous inspection”.
The inspection covered all aspects of our school’s distinctiveness and effectiveness as a church school and one part of the information gathering included meeting with parents and carers of the school. Thank you very much to the group of parents and carers who gave up their time to meet with the inspector. Their views were an important part of the information gathered on the inspection day.
We are very proud of the hard work of our staff and pupils which is reflected in the judgement of this inspection. If you wish to read the full report, click here – Holy Trinity final SIAMS report April 2017.
