Excellence Never Stops

Morgan’s Vale and Woodfalls Church of England Primary School has retained its Outstanding status in a recent inspection.

SIAMS* Inspector Lorraine Pugh noted, “The school’s core community Christian values are known by all members of its community and deeply embedded into all aspects of its work.

“The headteacher’s leadership is highly effective in ensuring the school’s inclusive Christian vision has the highest profile. This successfully impacts on the academic and social development of all its children.

“The high quality provision for religious education and collective worship significantly impacts on the school’s Christian character.

“The deeply felt Christian commitment of the school’s leadership team, staff and governors is successfully enabling children to achieve well within a highly effective Christian environment.”

Children are encouraged to take a role in school life

Children are encouraged to take a role in school life, contributing to collective worship, charity work, and extra-curricular activities with the local church. A ‘Friendship Stop’ ensures high levels of inclusion at playtimes. Parents say they feel genuinely listened to.

Morgan’s Vale and Woodfalls is one of only twenty-two schools in the whole of Wiltshire to have Green Flag status.

Plans include use of ‘Understanding Christianity’ resources in Religious Education (RE), a governors’ review of monitoring and evaluation, and the children’s worship committee leading acts of worship.

Morgan’s Vale and Woodfalls is a smaller than average primary school with 106 children on roll, serving its rural community just outside Salisbury. Children are predominantly from White British backgrounds. The proportion of children eligible for free school meals and the pupil premium grant is below the national average. The number of children receiving extra support for special educational needs is above the national average.

The current headteacher has been in post for 13 years. Teaching is organised into four mixed aged classes. The school also provides a Nursery class. In 2013, and since the past inspection, the school has converted to an Academy, educating children between the ages of 2 to 11.
