OfSTED Inspection Report 2014

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. In 2017 the Phonics test was 97%.

Average score in reading

This score is known as the reading 'scaled score'. The score is an average for pupils in the school. The expected standard is a score of 100 or more. The higher standard is 110 or more (Greater Depth: GD).

Average score in maths

This score is known as the maths 'scaled score'. The score is an average for pupils in the school. The expected standard is a score of 100 or more. The higher standard is 110 or more.

Percentage of pupils achieving the higher standard

Pupils are 'achieving at a higher standard' if they achieve a 'scaled score' of 110 or more in their reading and maths tests, and their teacher assesses them as 'working at a greater depth (GD) within the expected standard' in writing. This standard was set for the first time in 2016 by the Department for Education to provide information about pupils across England achieving in the top 5%.
