… but you don’t just have to take our word for it – this is the judgement of the SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspector.
In addition to being inspected by Ofsted, Church of England schools are also subject to regular, statutory inspection by the Church. These inspections are not merely an evaluation of the impact of the school’s Christian values on pupils but a rigorous assessment of all aspects of the school including; leadership, behaviour, wellbeing and quality of education. Following Ogbourne’s recent SIAMS the inspector has judged the school to be Excellent. According to the Church of England’s Education Office “Excellence reveals extraordinary, innovative practice. It sets incredibly high expectations for Church schools”.
Neil Revell, Lead Advisor from Salisbury Diocese, said “The Principal and the impact of his leadership shines through in the report. It is clear that he and his team are enabling everyone’s light to shine within a school that has a deep sense of care and positive relationships. Ogbourne is a school where everyone is truly valued”.
