Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools
Every five years, The Church of England commissions an inspection of Church of England Schools. Our most recent visit took place on 2nd November 2017.The distinctiveness and effectiveness of All Saints’ as a Church of England school were deemed outstanding.
This visit explored how effectively our Christian vision is established and promoted in order for all children at the school, regardless of faith, to flourish. The visit also specifically looked at how effective Collective worship is and how children learn in RE.
Some key observations and judgements published in the report (below) include:
- Leaders at all levels ensure that the schools mission statement, ‘Educating the saints of today for a world of tomorrow’ and its distinctive Christian values are at the heart of the school. They are articulated and lived out exceptionally well by the whole school community.
- Pupils are engaged and enthused by the richly planned and creatively delivered Religious Education (RE) curriculum. Consequently, progress is outstanding.
- Collective worship is Bible based, deeply Christian and highly inclusive of all. It has a significant effect on the lives of the whole school community. As a direct result of the school’s Christian values the conduct, manners and attitudes of pupils are excellent and attitudes to learning are consistently outstanding.
- Parents speak positively about the sense of family that this Christian school has for their pupils and the wider community.
