It's 'GOOD' News...AGAIN!
Head Teacher Newsletter - Friday 17th March 2023
'The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one.' 1 Corinthians 2:15
As you may know, we all experienced a second inspection this term - this time, it was a SIAMS inspection.
The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) is the Church of England and Methodist Church’s outworking of the requirements of section 48 of the Education Act 2005. It is a key element of the life of all Church of England and Methodist schools in England.
SIAMS inspection explores the question, “How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?”
I am pleased to announce, once again, that we have been judged as 'Good!'
I have included the report below so I would encourage you to read the full report; however, I have included some of the highlight comments from the inspector, further below:
Have a lovely weekend and please share this with the children and celebrate their successes...because, once again, this is all about them!
The school’s Christian vision promotes positive relationships that are based upon dignity and respect.
It is a nurturing school community where behaviour is very good and supported by the school’s well-embedded Christian values.
Pupils flourish through the provision of religious education because it is well-led, so staff are supported to develop their teaching effectively.
Pupils enjoy their learning and recognise the importance of the subject.
Parents feel that their cogs provide suitable guidance for everyone, regardless of their faith.
The school cares for its community by knowing each individual and every family.
It inspires pupils through its enriched curriculum and ensures that they receive appropriate support to enable them to achieve.
Staff know their pupils well and recognise that nurture has an essential part to play in school.
Cultural diversity, injustice and inequality are woven through learning.
Leaders are mindful of the particular needs of their pupils and strive to always support their well-being, such as providing weekly Forest School for all classes.
Pupils have an integral part to play during each collective worship.
Crawford’s Church of England Primary School is a nurturing school. It is an inclusive community, which cares for every pupil and adult, inspiring them all to do their best.
