SIAMS* Inspector Rupert Kaye noted, “The clear Christian vision of the headteacher is pursued with love, joy and passion. She inspires all staff, governors and children to live out the school’s Christian values every day.

“Exemplary standards of children’s conduct and behaviour are the fruit of excellent, caring and respectful school relationships that are modelled on the person and teaching of Jesus.

“Children are enthusiastic about their involvement in planning, leading and evaluating collective worship and can clearly articulate the relevance of Bible stories to their own and others’ lives.”

Headteacher Amanda Brockway says, “The inspector visited every classroom as well as conducting various interviews over the course of the day. He also spoke to lots of children about a wide variety of ideas to get their perspective on their school.

“A SIAMS Inspection takes place every 5 years and Leadership and Management cannot be judged to be outstanding without excellent governance and specifically RE subject leadership (full credit to Mrs Cadge and Miss Hill) alongside the leadership team of the school.”

Michael Gibb, Chair of Governors, says, “It is a truly uplifting picture of our school. I know every single one of us all are incredibly proud to be part of such a special group of people who collectively go the extra mile to make this happen.

“All members of the wider team I hope will feel hugely proud to have played their part.”

Ongoing work includes organising visits to places of worship, developing outdoor worship and spiritual areas, and a review of religious education (RE) assessments.

Broad Chalke is a smaller than average primary school with 208 children on roll. The school serves families living in local rural communities and those in nearby towns. The number of children from military families is above national average. The majority of children are of a White British heritage. The number of children with learning difficulties and/ or disabilities is lower than the national average, as are those entitled to receive pupil premium.
