Outstanding SIAS for Great Bedwyn

by Michael Ford last modified 29 Aug, 2014 02:50 PM

One of the last schools to be inspected under the SIAS framework has passed with flying colours.

Great Bedwyn CE Primary's established strengths include:

  • The Christian values which underpin the daily life of the school through the effective  unpacking of the school rule “Be kind”
  • The relationships between all stakeholders
  • The partnership between the school, the church community and the local community

Good practice included Religious Education being enhanced by using the church as a resource and by the team rector’s visits to the school.

Children, parents and members of the community created a spiritual garden which was opened and blessed by the Bishop of Ramsbury in 2010 and continues to provide an area for quiet reflection.

“Forest School” activities present many opportunities for awe and wonder and for the children’s spiritual growth through the development of respect for each other and for the environment.

In a Year 2 RE lesson about Jesus being tempted, children were asked to make a wish for the world. After discussion one child said, “a machine that creates happiness”.
