Ofsted and SIAMS Reports


Our Ofsted Inspection  on 5th & 6th May 2016, assessed the school as ‘Good’ in all areas. The report praises changes made since the last inspection and recognises many areas of achievement.

Here are some key highlights from the report:

  • ‘The school has improved quickly because leaders and teachers have worked together successfully and improved the quality of teaching and pupils’ progress.’

  • ‘Teachers have high expectations for learning and behaviour.’

  • ‘The school provides a caring and safe environment.’

  • ‘Across the school, and from their different starting points, pupils are making good progress in a wide range of subjects.’


As a Church of England School, we receive regular inspections under the Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools framework of the National Society (SIAMS Report). The principal objective of these inspections is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school. Our SIAMS Inspection in 2013 graded St. Mary's as 'Outstanding'.


Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills, regulates and inspects schools and other institutions. With each formal inspection of a school, an inspection report is produced. More information on Ofsted's activities, for parents and carers, is available here.
