"GOOD" in all areas - Nov 2017

 

I am absolutely delighted to be able to tell you that, following the recent inspection by Ofsted, St Andrew and St Francis School has been graded “Good” overall, and also on all five key judgements: outcomes for pupils, quality of teaching, learning and assessment, personal development, behavior and welfare, early years and effectiveness of leadership and management.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SIAMS Inspections

 

I take delight in writing this letter following our recent SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection on the 7th June 2018. We are pleased to announce that the school was awarded the grade of GOOD, with 2 of the 4 areas graded Outstanding. This achievement exemplifies our commitment and pride in being a church school and also providing our children with the best educational opportunities possible.

 

The purpose and focus of a SIAMS inspection is:

 

"... to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school, and how well the distinctive Christian character and ethos of the school ensure the development and achievement of the whole child or young person.

 

This is evaluated through four core 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? (in VA schools and academies)

  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?

 

Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles appropriate to, and reflective of, their particular context in order to be distinctively and effectively Christian in their character and ethos.  SIAMS inspectors therefore do not look for a set template of what a church school should be like, but rather take the particular context of the school into account and base their evaluation on the outcomes rather than the process."
