Criftins Church of England Primary School

SIAMS Report

Criftins is a nurturing, joyful and successful Church school.

Its aspirational Christian vision inspires

and empowers each member of its community.

Adults and pupils live life in all its fullness, learning,

growing and flourishing together.


On Thursday 10th March we had a SIAMS inspection that was conducted by Mrs.Mary Gale. During the day she spent some time talking to the children, staff, parents and governors as well as conducting a walk through and observations around school in order to arrive at a judgement.

As part of the inspection schedule we were judged on our distinctiveness and effectiveness as a Church School, how the school through its distinctive Christian character meets the needs of all learners, the impact of collective worship on the school community and the effectiveness of the leadership and management of the school.

We are all thrilled with the result.

Another wonderful achievement which recognises that our school goes beyond standard education and seeks to develop the whole child. Our value this term is FRIENDSHIP, we have been thinking about the impact of our words on other people using the verse from Proverbs 18v21. This outstanding certificate received is an encouragement to our whole community. Well done everyone
