Church School Inspection
All church schools are inspected by Ofsted and in addition receive a 'Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools' (SIAMs) report.
Vicarage Park was last inspected in October 2022 when the school was judged Good overall. Some of the highlights from the report can be seen below:
- Recently appointed leaders and governors work ceaselessly to create an open and
collaborative community which enables all to have a voice. The wellbeing of pupils and
adults drives leaders to positive, bold actions.
- Nurturing and loving relationships, underpinned by the Christian foundation of the school,
create a strong sense of community. These relationships are a joyful expression of the deep
rooted care that leaders and staff have for all pupils and families.
- Religious education (RE) is valued by pupils and enables them to show an understanding of
Christianity as a living world faith. Pupils enthuse about the breadth of the curriculum,
including learning about a variety of faiths.
- The generous offering of time and gifts from clergy and members of the local church
enriches collective worship. This important partnership enhances the use of prayer and
music in worship.
- Innovative links between curriculum content and school values enhances pupils' learning.
These links provide profound opportunities for pupils to experience values being lived out
across the whole curriculum.
