Ofsted Inspection 2016 - Good

We were last visited by Ofsted in January 2016 where the school was rated as 'Good' in all areas and overall. The full report can be read above. The areas we were tasked to develop further were 

              1) Some of our highest ability learners were not being fully stretched in some subjects.

              2) We needed to develop reasoning skills within maths.

              3) Some of the behaviour in school was not good enough. 

These were focused on by the previous Headteacher at the time and we were continued and developed this work further as part of the school development plan.  

SIAMS Inspection 2017 - Outstanding

We have recently had our SIAMs inspection 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

The last time we were inspected was November 2012 and the school had been judged as 'Good' in all four areas and overall. We are delighted that in 2017, the inspector judged that Christ Church C of E 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).

It has been a fantastic opportunity to share what we have achieved, celebrate what we do well and learn from others about what else we could do to move forward as a Church school. We do feel though that we still want to do even more to support every family and provide the best possible start to life for every child, so we will be continuing to embed the good practice, learn from others and grow as a Church school.

We are always very open to feedback, so please do send us an email or see Mrs Osborne if there is anything you'd like to ask or feedback to us.
