SIAMS Reports

Our latest church school inspection (SIAMS) was in January 2020.  The school was judged to be  good with the impact of collective worship being graded as excellent.

“St John's school ensures that pupils make the academic, social and emotional progress that enables them to flourish and be resilient and aspirational for their futures.”

(SIAMS inspection 2020)

“Pupils have a highly developed sense of fairness and justice. They demonstrate this in their exemplary behaviour and leadership.”
