ORSETT CE Primary School are celebrating the outcome of their recent school inspection which was a Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS). All church schools are required to be inspected under a framework similar to OFSTED with a specific focus on: Christian Character, Collective Worship, Religious Education and Leadership and Management and the inspection judged Orsett CE Primary School to be Outstanding.
The report stated that, ‘Outstanding leadership has secured improved achievements for pupils across all subject areas including RE, thereby increasing educational and life chances for every child.’
Headteacher, Lallie Godfrey, commented on the report stating, ‘Last year we had an OFSTED Inspection under the new and rigorous Framework and our school was judged to be Good with Outstanding for Behaviour and Safety and Leadership and Management. Since then everyone in our school has worked relentlessly to improve still further and this report, which judges us to be Outstanding overall, is a reflection of the success of the improvements that we have made and we are determined to continue to improve still further.’
‘I am delighted with this judgement which was then followed by the news that our school is currently in the top 250 schools nationally for progress between Key Stage 1 and 2 which is fantastic. I would like to thank everyone involved in the life and work of our school: – staff, governors, parents, the community and our children for their continued support. We are only successful through effective collaboration, hard work and people who care. We are very lucky to have all this AND more at Orsett Primary School.’
