How effective is Religious Education? OUTSTANDING
Learners are enthusiastic about religious education and show a genuine interest in both the content of lessons and the varied activities which stimulate their thinking. They have excellent behaviours for learning demonstrating a mature approach which enables them to master knowledge and skills in a supportive environment where all opinions are valued and respected.
How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school? OUTSTANDING
The governing body, school staff, parents and learners themselves, all articulate the Christian values of Challenge, Integrity, Respect, Community, Love and Equality (CIRCLE). These values are embedded into the heart of everything the school does and have a positive impact on the lives of the learners served by the school.
The school staff, led by the headteacher who is an excellent role model, ensure that the school’s values are integrated into every aspect of school life, which has promoted high standards of both attainment and pupil progress.
The inspector was especially impressed with how the "school provides an excellent ‘family feeling’ in which each member of the school community has an important place and a sense of belonging".
