'Shining Brighter and Brighter' Proverbs 4:18


In March 2023 St Mary's took part in a Section 8 or ungraded Ofsted inspection. This confirmed that St Mary's remains a good school. The follow report can be accessed below or via the Ofsted website

SIAMS Church School Inspection

St Mary’s, along with all church schools, takes part in an inspection additional to the Ofsted inspection. This inspection is known as the SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) and focuses on aspects of the school which make it distinctive as a church school.

The final report from our inspection states that the distinctiveness and effectiveness of St Mary’s School is GOOD.

You can download the full report below but some of the highlights include:

  • Standards of teaching and learning in RE are consistently good as evidenced by the school’s own monitoring. 
  • Assessment shows that pupils achieve in line with the age related expectations of the school’s RE syllabus and make good progress over time. 
  • Recent changes in the teaching arrangements have raised the profile of RE as an academic, core subject. 
  • The subject leader has a clear plan of action to further raise standards in RE through ensuring that all pupils, including the most able and those with special educational needs, are challenged appropriately in their learning.
