As a Church of England School, we accept children of all faith and those of none. We actively celebrate the wonder of faith and the world around us, as part of this, we follow the National Curriculum guidance on teaching children RE. We learn about all faiths and encourage children to question religion and to find out why people believe what they believe.
In Modern Britain, it is important for all of our children to learn to have tolerance and compassion for others and for them to have an appreciation and respect for other people's beliefs and faith.
Throughout the year children learn about different religions and the special qualities associated with each.
Please contact the school office if you would like to know more.
SIAMS Inspection Report
Alongside OFSTED, there is a separate inspection process for church schools called 'Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools' (SIAMS). These inspections follow a timetable independent of Ofsted and happen every 5 years for schools rated good or outstanding. The principal objective of the inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.
The evaluation schedule has one inspection question: How effective is the school's distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?
Our last SIAMS inspection was conducted in Nov 2015 and we received a rating of GOOD.
