Inspection Reports

What is an OFSTED inspection?

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills. Ofsted inspects services providing education and skills for learners of all ages. Park Street C of E Primary School was inspected by Ofsted on the 25th and 26th of November 2021. The inspection identified our school as a place in which:

"Pupils feel valued. They feel happy and safe because of the support and care they receive from staff."
"Pupils are taught to celebrate kindness. Because of this, they are polite and respectful."
"Behaviour is calm. Bullying is rare, but pupils say that if it happens, leaders deal with it quickly."
"Pupils are successful and become responsible young people as a result of leaders’ high aspirations for them."
"Pupils display the school’s values of ‘joy, truth, love and courage’ throughout the school day."
"Pupils talk about their learning with enthusiasm. They say that their teachers take account of their individual needs. As a result, pupils flourish."

We encourage you to take time to absorb the full report of which we are very proud. We hope you can see within the report's content, the continued enhancement of Park Street School as a happy, nurturing, inclusive school where all pupils flourish and everyone is valued.

What is a SIAMS inspection?

All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the Church of England Education Office’s framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.  The SIAMS Evaluation Schedule sets out the expectations for the conduct of the Statutory Inspection of Anglican, Methodist and ecumenical Schools under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.

SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults. This involves looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish.

SIAMS explores ways in which each school’s theologically rooted Christian vision drives its work and enables the school to live up to its foundation as a Church school. It does so by seeking to answer seven Inspection Questions (IQs).

IQ1: How does the school’s theologically rooted Christian vision enable pupils and adults to flourish?

IQ2: How does the curriculum reflect the school’s theologically rooted Christian vision?

IQ3: How is collective worship enabling pupils and adults to flourish spiritually?

IQ4: How does the school’s theologically rooted Christian vision create a culture in which pupils and adults are treated well?

IQ5: How does the school’s theologically rooted Christian vision create an active culture of justice and responsibility?

IQ6: Is the religious education curriculum effective (with reference to the expectations set out in the Church of England’s Statement of Entitlement for Religious Education)?

IQ7: What is the quality of religious education in voluntary aided and former voluntary aided schools, and in former voluntary controlled schools in which denominational religious education is taught?

We are pleased to share that our latest inspection findings indicate that the school is living up to its foundation as a Church school, and is enabling pupils and adults to flourish.
