Salway Ash praised as "welcoming, inclusive, nurturing"

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

Salway Ash CE VA Primary has been praised in a recent SIAS inspection, which also commented on its "strong Christian role models", "well established links between school, church and wider community" and "creative curriculum".

Established strengths include:

  • Welcoming, inclusive, nurturing environment based on explicit Christian values, underpinned by strong element of prayer
  • Dynamic, proactive, empowering leadership by headteacher and governors which strongly supports the Church of England foundation
  • Strong Christian role models provided by Headteacher, staff and governors
  • Excellent, well established links between school, church and wider community, offering a creative curriculum with extensive extra curricular opportunities

The inspector also remarked:

Christian values are lived out in practice, and are explained consistently by all stakeholders. Pupils very confidently say how these values are helpful in their daily lives, for example in the way they could talk about their friendships.

Pupils are given excellent opportunities to develop their potential within a nurturing and inclusive environment which is enhanced through the strong supportive relationship with the church.

Pupils talk about the Conservation area positively as a quiet area for personal reflection, and stewardship of the natural environment as “taking care of God’s world”. The school has identified continued development of the outdoor environment to provide further spiritual development opportunities.

The school’s Christian ethos of concern for others extends beyond the school itself and is evident in the charitable work done in the wider community, for example in fundraising for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and the Kwaggafonten Farm School in South Africa.

Head Teacher Lisa Crew said, “We’re delighted with the outcome and are so pleased that the outstanding work carried out by everyone in school is recognised and can be celebrated.”
