Downton On Their Uppers

by Michael Ford last modified 22 Sep, 2015 11:42 AM

In May 2015, the SIAMS Inspector rated Downton CE outstanding in all categories.

There is a strong RE leader and much excellent parish community school practice.

The inspector noted,

“Relationships across the school are excellent and reflect the love and care for all pupils as unique individuals in God.

“The school, local churches and clergy and the wider community are closely linked to the benefit of all stakeholders.

“The Christian ethos underpins all aspects in the life of the school and impacts positively on teaching and learning.

“The importance and rigor given to Religious Education as a core subject ensures standards are high and that pupils are engaged and interested.

“Downton CE is a smaller than average school where most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is well below average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action is below average whilst the proportion supported at school action plus or through a statement of need is above average. Attendance is broadly in line with the national average. The school runs a breakfast and after-school provision that both have a good take-up. The headteacher has been in post since January.”
