Whiteparish- strong start for SIAMS

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

The first school inspected under the new SIAMS framework has been graded 'outstanding' in all categories.

Whiteparish All Saints VA Primary's established strengths include:

  • Very strong Christian values of kindness, respect, compassion and forgiveness which guide the work of the school
  • Excellent behaviour displayed by the children and care for each other
  • Strong support and challenge given by the foundation governors to all aspects of the school’s life

The inspector noted that "The results in English have been significantly above national averages for 6 years and pupils have made very good progress. Current data shows this trend as continuing" and "The needs of pupils of all abilities are well met and the high aspirations which the school has are rooted in its values."

Good practice included buildings used extensively by the local church for events such as marriage preparation and meetings and this year for the joint church-school fete. Parents and carers are strongly supportive of the school, saying how well their children develop and progress as a result of the Christian values and ethos.

The school is working towards including a range of Christian traditions to enhance their Collective Worship.

Headteacher Kate Heathcote says, "Every child at this school matters and we value each talent and gift that each child brings to the school. We aim to help them find their talents and passions, as well as equipping the children for life long learning."

She adds, "As the children leave us at the end of Year 6 to embark on the next phase of their education, I know that they leave us as confident, happy children, with good literacy and numeracy skills, keen to embrace any challenges they may meet."
