All Church of England schools are inspected every 5 years under the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools inspection protocol (SIAMS). We were delighted to welcome the inspectors in to St John's in May 2019 and to show them our school.
This new (from January 2019) inspection process is extremely rigorous and we were extremely pleased with the report which praised our strong ethos and focus on valuing each individual in our community. The report says:
"The exceptionally strong and dynamic leadership of the headteacher has created a vibrant, deeply Christian learning community in which every member flourishes and knows that they are valued."
"The school’s evolving Christian vision and values contribute to pupils’ excellent behaviour and positive attitudes to life."
"High levels of modelling, nurturing and supporting by both adults and children result in rapid progress, mutual appreciation and valuing of each individual’s contribution to the life and success of the school."
"Extremely strong, mutually beneficial partnerships with the church, diocese and local Church schools contribute significantly to the school’s distinctive Christian character. They impact positively on the spiritual life of all members of the school family."
