Seend C. of E. Primary School deemed ‘Good’ by SIAMS inspection

Story posted on

Five years to the day since their last inspection, Seend C. of E. Primary School have undergone another SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection. 

The SIAMS evaluates “how effective is  the school’s distinctive Christian vision,  established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?” 

After all the documentation had been scrutinised and after a day’s inspection when parents, children, governors and staff were questioned,  lessons and whole school worship were observed,  the school is pleased to announce that the overall judgement was ‘Good’ with the additional judgments of ‘Excellent’ for Impact of Collective Worship, and ‘Good’ for the Impact of RE.

Some highlights of the report were “Seend’s Christian Vision has been deeply influential in establishing as nurturing, caring, inclusive Christian community with a strong family ethos. RE is highly effective in supporting pupils’ spiritual and personal development. School leaders have created a loving community where everybody matters. Pupils are valued and supported whatever their needs. Parents say they are overwhelmingly grateful to the school for the support they have been given through difficult times and complex situations, allowing themselves and their children to retain confidence and dignity.” 

Headteacher, Jackie Chalk said, “We are really pleased that we have been able to achieve this whilst also still being heavily involved in supporting the turn-around of St. George’s School in Semington and that our work there was also recognised in the report; “Seend’s leaders are dedicated to Christian commitment beyond their own school, living out their Christian vision of giving and making a positive difference. The head teacher and governing body have significantly supported another primary school during a turbulent period which has resulted in increased numbers and greatly improved academic standards in the supported school.”
