Winchcombe Abbey judged as 'Outstanding ' by church school inspector

The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Winchcombe Abbey School as a Church of England school has been judged to be outstanding, following an inspection earlier this term.

The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) takes place every five years. The purpose of the inspection is to judge the contribution of the Academy’s Christian character and ethos to children’s personal development and learning.

Amongst other things, the report highlighted how the “deeply embedded Christian values” made a significant contribution to all aspects of children’s well-being and development. Praising the strong and inspired leadership of the Headteacher, senior leaders and governors, the report went on to acknowledge the profound effect that the introduction of philosophy for children (P4C) had on both children’s learning and on their spiritual development.

The strong partnerships with the church and with the diocesan academies trust was also recognised as a significant strength of the school.

Mrs Helen Springett, Headteacher said, "I am delighted that this core aspect of our schools work has been recognised in such a positive way. The report clearly identifies how strongly it impacts on every aspect of our children's lives."
