National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools Report (SIAMS)

We are very pleased to announce that the school was judged as an ‘Outstanding’ Church School, in all areas of the inspection.

Mr Bunkell, the inspector, states in his report:

“A Christian ethos is at the heart of the school. The supportive atmosphere played a major part in the very rapid and sustained improvement in academic achievement between 2012 and 2016, as recognised by Ofsted. Attainment is now in line with or above national expectations in all areas, with no significant differences for those with particular needs. Senior staff and governors constantly ensure that the school’s Christian values pervade every aspect of life at the school. They are able to explain the immense impact this has on the lives of pupils, for example its contribution to the recent rapid improvement in academic standards by pupils who are equipped to persevere. The executive headteacher and head of school work extremely effectively as partners to steer the spiritual leadership of the school.”

The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Worlingworth as a Church of England school are outstanding

  • Relationships between all in the school community are highly positive and mutually respectful due to the all-pervading Christian values which are at the centre of every aspect of school life.
  • Collective worship is firmly rooted in the Bible and Christian teaching, with Jesus Christ at the centre, and pupils showing a mature understanding of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • The leadership and management of religious education and collective worship are given great priority, leading to highly effective practice in each.

As a Church of England School, we value the relationship between our local churches, our school, our families and the distinctive Christian values that underpin our school ethos. We believe the report acknowledges all that we do to support the pupils in our school. We hope you enjoy reading the report and celebrating this achievement with us.
