SIAMS - Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools

SIAMS Inspection - October 2022
On Thursday 13th October 2022 we received our much-awaited SIAMS inspection which was carried out under a new inspection framework.
We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the grade of GOOD.
Some of the highlights from the report are as follows:
'Littledean C of E Primary is an inclusive school, where everyone is loved, valued and respected.  Strong Christian leadership ensures every member of the community is built up to be the best they can possibly be, celebrating success in whatever form that takes.'
'The well-established Christian vision is at the heart of this school and clearly enables pupils and adults to flourish.'
'Relationships across the school and within the community are strong.'
'Leaders and governors have high expectations and aspirations for the school community.'
We are exceptionally proud of our school and school community and these comments are just a few from the report that really highlight how special our school is.  
Please do have a read of the full report.


On Tuesday 19thMay the school was subject to a SIAMS inspection (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools). We are absolutely thrilled to be able to share with you that following the inspection the school has been graded as OUTSTANDING.
The report commended us on the ‘caring, nurturing ethos of the school’ and noted that the ‘impact of Christian values, especially friendship and forgiveness leads to high levels of respect and exemplary behaviour’
During the inspection a number of children, parents and governors spoke to the inspector and their contribution to the result of the inspection is greatly appreciated.
I am very proud of the school and it is absolutely wonderful to have a report that really captures what we feel is important in regards to the work that we do with children, families and the wider community.
Please take time to read the report (link below) as it really is a direct reflection of what we have achieved as a school community.


‘"Littledean is a good church school with a developing Christian ethos which has progressed since the last inspection. The school carefully nurtures children within an environment of respect for their individuality and this has created a community in which children grow in self-worth and are encouraged to have aspirations for their own futures." -  SIAS Inspection Report 17th June 2010.
