Moving Forward Group

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.  


Radford Semele C of E Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, volunteers and parents to share this commitment.
