Sutton Shines On

Sutton Veny Primary School, near Warminster, has maintained its Outstanding status in a recent school inspection.

SIAMS* Inspector David Hatrey notes, “Christian values are deeply embedded into the life of the school and children articulate the significant impact they have on their daily lives and achievements.

“Children’s behaviour is of a high standard; they make strong relationships in a caring community which they consistently attribute to the school’s Christian character.

“Children play a leading role in planning and leading worship and have a real sense of ownership of it.

“The strong commitment of the headteacher and leadership team ensures religious education (RE) and collective worship have a high profile.”

Headteacher Rachael Brotherton says, “"We are all immensely proud of our school because the values and children are at the heart of everything we do. The SIAMS outcome is testimony to the hard work, support and commitment of our strong team of staff, children, parents and governors, which is supported by the local church community.

“We can now look forward to building on our success by sustaining all that we do, as well continuing to develop and grow the school for the future.”

Areas for further work include providing high quality spiritual experiences with creative output, deepening understanding of Christianity as multi-cultural faith, and involving children in monitoring and evaluating the impact of being a church school.

Sutton Veny Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary is a smaller than average school. The majority of children come from a White British heritage and a number come from forces families. A small number of children are entitled to pupil premium funding. The number of children who have special educational needs and/ or disabilities is below the national average.
