Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)

Stoke Goldington Church of England First School underwent a  Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) inspection in October 2014.  

All areas inspected achieved OUTSTANDING grades. The report highlights -

  • The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Stoke Goldington CE First School are outstanding.
  • The inspiring leadership of the headteacher and senior leaders ensures that the Christian distinctiveness of the school is known and lived out by the whole school community.
  • A clear understanding of the Christian values of love and respect ensures high standards of attainment and behaviour as each child feels valued as an individual.
  • The excellent relationships between staff, pupils, foundation governors, church and parents demonstrate that, in Stoke Goldington, the Christian values of integrity and trust are lived out every day.
  • Regular opportunities for reflection results in the growth of all pupils academically, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally (SMSC).

SIAMS Highlights......

Stoke Goldington is a welcoming and caring Christian community that loves, nurtures and respects all individuals whatever their ability or faith. 

Children are confident and willing to take risks in their learning as they are aware that they are respected and valued and this leads to high levels of attainment.

High standards of behaviour are a result of mutually respectful relationships between everyone in the school with Christian values such as respect and thankfulness reinforced in lessons, at play and in collective worship.

RE is extremely well planned and taught and its high priority within the school is clearly visible in the children’s work and in displays throughout the school.  

Children’s attainment and progress is celebrated in every room in the school. This ensures that pupils enjoy learning, and consequently attendance is excellent.  

SIAMS & Parents

Parents are proud of the school and its impact on the attitudes of the children. They feel welcomed into the school and are confident that the Christian foundation of the school results in high, personal expectations and achievement for their children. They speak highly of the school’s pastoral care and the staff commitment to their children’s needs.
