Ofsted Inspection November 2019 - Good


We were last visited by Ofsted in November 2019 where the school was rated as 'Good' in all areas and overall. The full report can be read above.

''Pupils love coming to this happy school. They find school exciting, feel safe and say that adults take good care of them. Pupil s joy in learning is plain to see. They show high levels of concentration and enthusiasm in class . If they find something difficult, they do not give up . Pupils listen well to their teachers and readily work with each other to share ideas and solve problems. Pupils look out for each other. They get on very well together and with all staff.''

SIAMS Inspection 2017 - Outstanding

Our last SIAMs inspection was in October 2017, which is where the inspection team look at the whole school as a church school and comment on the four areas of:

                         1) Church distinctiveness

                         2) Leadership

                         3) Collective Worship

                         4) Curriculum and RE teaching

We are delighted that in 2017, the inspector judged that Christ Church CofE Junior school was outstanding overall as well as in each of the four areas. For more details, please read the report below (the main report feeds back on areas 1-3 and then extra report feeds back on area 4).

2020, 2021 and 2022 Data

The 2019/20 and 2020/21 national curriculum tests did not take place due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  

The following assessments were cancelled:  

•    end of key stage 1 and key stage 2 assessments 
•    phonics screening check  
•    multiplication tables check  
•    science sampling tests  
•    all statutory trialling 

As there were no formal assessments in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 academic years, schools do not need to provide assessment data for this period. 

Formal assessments recommenced in 2020/21. The government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have also archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.
