A primary school has been hailed outstanding and given a certificate after a SIAMS school inspection.
Hose C of E Primary School was rated outstanding amongst other Church of England and Methodist schools.
The certificate demonstrates the Christian values and ethos which enable each child to flourish and reach their potential.
During an inspection, which took place before Easter, the school was praised by an inspector for the way in which “the school takes seriously the need for the well-being of all its community.
“It provides an excellent learning environment enabling all pupils to feel valued and achieve well.”
Headteacher Margaret Cox said: “Everyone was so thrilled by the award which was the result of the dedication and commitment from everyone in the Hose school community.”
All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the National Society’s framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.
The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.
