As a Church of England School we are subject to being inspected by SIAMS (the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools), this is also known as a Section 48 inspection. All church schools will undergo this inspection which is scheduled every five years. The latest inspection stated:
The distinctiveness and effectiveness of St. John the Baptist as a Church of England school are outstanding
- The extremely strong Christian leadership of the headteacher and his vision for the development of the school ensure that the Christian ethos is at the heart of daily life.
- The school is extremely successful in creating a loving, caring and inclusive Christian environment which has a positive influence on children’s well-being and successful learning.
- The commitment of the governing body provides highly effective support and challenge for the work of the senior leadership team. Governors make an outstanding contribution to the self-evaluation and development of the school’s distinctive Christian ethos.
