Memorable, Outstanding Values in Melksham

by Michael Ford last modified 01 Jul, 2015 11:14 AM

Forest and Sandridge CE Primary School, Melksham, has received a glowing school inspection report.

The SIAMS inspector noted that:

"The headteacher is an inspirational Christian leader and this is providing strong strategic
direction for the school at a key moment in its development"

"Christian values inform all aspects of the school’s work from the personal conduct of pupils
to how governors see the school’s mission to its expanding community"

"Teaching about Christianity in collective worship and religious education (RE) makes a
significant impact on the Christian character of the school"

"Pupils’ engagement with Christian values and Bible stories results in mature spiritual, moral
and social understanding of issues in their daily lives"

Strong values were repeatedly cited, with one highly prized reward being the 'Kindness Cup'.

The number of pupils on roll is rapidly rising as the school prepares to move from its rural setting to a new site on a new housing estate in September 2015. It is currently housed in a Victorian building and six mobile classrooms. There have been changes to senior leadership in the last eighteen months as the headteacher took maternity leave and the deputy headteacher left for promotion. The proportions of disadvantaged pupils and those with special education needs are broadly average.
