Key Findings


This church school is good in providing nurturing Christian care through an environment where children, regardless of back ground, faith or ability, thrive.


The teaching of Jesus, underpins the strong relationships that exist.


The school is rich in artefacts and resources, with which pupils are encouraged to engage.


Pupils have fun whilst worshipping and sing enthusiastically.


Christian values are central to worship. Pupils and staff are empowered to nominate those who are applying these values, in response to ‘Jesus the shepherd’ in their lives daily, through the ‘sheep wall’. Worship is a crucial part of school life and through it pupils are learning about Anglican tradition and biblical teaching.


Religious Education (RE) has a high status in the school curriculum.


Parents appreciate the way they are welcomed by the school and encouraged to express their views regularly. They feel they have a voice and that, “the Christian values are lived out and teach their children to care and respect others”. In turn they feel they are making a difference to them as a family.
