Key Findings

The distinctively Christian vision is the golden thread that shapes the work of the school on a day-to-day basis. The headteacher is passionate about ensuring pupils and all members of the school community ‘live life in all its fullness’. She leads with humility and compassion as a servant leader.

There are rich and varied opportunities to develop pupils’ spirituality in collective worship and across the wider provision in school.

Pupils have a well-developed knowledge of courageous advocacy and are able to give examples of how this is lived out in others. They can talk with passion and insight about injustice, and how they themselves live out the school’s vision and make difference in their own world.

The religious education (RE) lead has worked tirelessly to develop pupils’ religious literacy, self-reflection and consideration of big questions linked to Christianity and other world faith and worldviews. Pupils are able to talk about Christianity and other faiths and are beginning to identify similarities to their own views and culture
