Church Schools Inspection

As a Church of England School we receive regular Diocesan inspections. The purposes of the inspection are:

  • to provide an evaluation of the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the church school for the governing body, the school, the parents, the diocese or local church authority, the National Society and the wider public;
  • to meet the requirements of Section 48 of the Education Act 2005 for schools which have a religious character;
  • to verify the outcome of the school’s self-evaluation;
  • to make a significant contribution to improvement in church schools.

During the inspection there are three key questions that will be explored:

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

Our school was last inspected in October 2015, prior to academy conversion.  Please see below the links to the reports for our predecessor school.
