  • Dedicated, creative, enthusiastic and hardworking staff, embedded with a strong culture of support and teamwork
  • An experienced, committed and supportive Governing Board
  • An attractive and well resourced teaching and learning environment
  • Supportive parents and others from the parish and wider community

Our last OFSTED inspection in 2019 (Outstanding) found that:

  • Leaders and governors have successfully created a culture of the highest aspiration for pupils and their teachers. They share an unwavering determination to provide the best for pupils, and to give them ‘roots to grow and wings to fly’
  • A climate of learning is underpinned by the strongest focus on pupils’ happiness and well-being
  • Leaders make excellent provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development [so] pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain, are ambitious for their future lives and speak confidently of the careers they would like to pursue.
  • The interactions between adults and children are inspirational

Our 2023 RE Inspection report found that:

  • The mission to follow the example of Jesus as they ‘Learn, love and live’, is known, lived and embraced by the pupils and fully endorsed by governors, staff and parents.
  • The attentive pastoral care they receive illustrates what it means to be part of a loving Christian school family
  • All Saints community has a powerful impact upon the personal faith, spiritual and moral development of the children they serve
  • It celebrates the efforts of every child
