Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools

Every 5 years the The National Society conducts an inspection of church schools. They report to governors on the quality of education provided in four distinct areas:

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 is Religious Education?

How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?

The inspector noted that the distinctiveness of the school as a church school was good, as demonstrated by:

  • The positive impact of Christian values on all aspects of school life.
  • The dedicated, caring and committed leadership of staff, governors and clergy in an atmosphere of mutual support and trust.
  • Children who are confident, enthusiastic and eager to learn.
  • Excellent, pro-active, relationships with parents, families and the wider community.
