Ofsted & SIAMS

OFSTED's last visit to our School was in December 2017. They commented:  

"This is a school whose values are firmly rooted in its Christian ethos. Leaders make sure that staff, pupils and families are well supported and treated with kindness and respect. Staff and governors share the same high expectation that every pupil can succeed. Staff and pupils feel pleased and proud to be members of this school community.

Pupils behave extremely well in lessons and around school, showing respect and courtesy to each other as well as to staff and visitors. They are interested in their learning and they take pride in presenting their work carefully in order to meet teachers’ expectations.

Parents I spoke to informally at the start of the day were highly complimentary about the school. Typical comments included, ‘This is an amazing school’ and ‘There is such a family feel and they keep us well informed all the time.’"

Our latest SIAMS inspection in April 2022 found that:

"A strong and tangible culture of nurture for all permeates every aspect of life at All Saints. 

The strong focus on each pupil being treated as a unique individual is seen in all aspects of school life. They speak powerfully about 'Zones of Regulation' helping them to express how they are feeling, enabling them to be more ready to learn.

Staff are keen provide pupils with a diverse range of books. They are intentional about planning opportunities for pupils to encounter other aspects of diversity. One parent was thrilled when her daughter came home stating 'I never knew people who look like me can be anything they want to be.'

Opportunities to develop spiritually are seen throughout the school and pupils speak eloquently of their deepest thoughts.

All Saints lives out its vision to nurture and develop resilience so that all achieve in a truly authentic way. The Headteacher and whole community are passionate about everyone being able to flourish, despite such challenging times."
