Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools

We are pleased to publish the June 2018 1806 SIAMS – St Bartholomew’s – Report – Final which has rated St Bartholomew’s School as OUTSTANDING.

Some of the highlights:

  • The leadership of the headteacher, ably supported by her senior leadership team, governors and the newly revitalised faith group, is effectively focused on promoting the school’s explicitly Christian and inclusive ethos. This means that its Christian foundation fruitfully drives forward developments as a church school.
  • Appropriately high academic expectations, excellent behaviour and mutually respectful and supportive relationships are clear expressions of the school’s Christian vision and values.
  • Both the worship programme and religious education (RE) have a suitably high profile within school life and contribute deeply to its Christian and inclusive values. This, along with the school’s involvement in the LifeSavers project, impacts effectively on the strong provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development and their positive responses to such opportunities.
  • Partnership with St Bartholomew’s church is longstanding and constructively impacts on the school’s distinctive Christian character.
