As a Church of England school, two different bodies inspect us: the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted) and the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS), each placing a different focus on what we have to offer our children. For further information about SIAMS click here.
St Stephens was last fully inspected by SIAMS in May 2017 and was once again judged as ‘Outstanding’.
Children are very happy in school. The unanimous agreement of a group of school council members was that they “loved everything about the school!” SIAS Report May 2012
The inspectors reported: “St Stephens is an outstanding learning community inspired by Christian values. It has exemplary and encouraging leadership. Children are highly valued and develop as confident and caring individuals within the strong and tangible Christian ethos which permeates all areas of the school’s life.”
