Church School Inspection Report 2017

SIAMS


All Church of England dioceses use the National Society's framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS). The framework provides a process for evaluating the extent to which church schools are "distinctively and recognisably Christian institutions". Towards this objective, inspectors seek answers to four key questions.

  • 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 the Religious Education?(in VA schools and academies)

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

Overall School Performance

 

Pupil achievement in Reception and at both key stages is consistently above the national and county average and in a number of instances significantly above the national average in the period from 2012 to 2016. On a number of occasions St Mary’s has been the highest achieving school in Thornbury and in 2015 was recognized as having the highest percentage of Level 5+ than any other school in South Gloucestershire. (90 schools approx). We received a letter of recognition from Nick Gibbs the Education minister for our achievement in gaining 95% in the 2014 Phonics tests.
