We have an active group who are focused on the Christian distinctiveness of our school. The Moving Forward Group meets once a half term and is made up of our head teacher, RE and collective worship lead teacher, our foundation governors, the vicar from St Nicholas' church and our chair of governors.
We use the SIAMS self-evaluation tool in order to support our discussions. We explore this by focusing on the seven strands:
Vision and Leadership
Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills
Character Development: Hope, Aspiration and Courageous Advocacy
Community and Living Well Together
Dignity and Respect
Impact of Collective Worship
Effectiveness of Religious Education
We discuss our actions as a church school, the impact these actions have and make decisions about next steps in order to move forward in any identified area.
