As a C of E school we are subject to a SIAMS inspection, which takes place every 5 years. Yesterday we were pleased to welcome Mr.Mike Graham and he focused on the effect that the Christian ethos of the church school has on the children and young people who attend it. Mr Graham met with representatives of the Church, governors, parents, staff and children. He interviewed School Council, the Ethos Group and a number of older children about their work and their thoughts on worship and prayer. He watched Year 1's class service and observed the children in several RE lessons. He was overwhelmed by the enthusiastic, confident and articulate children and the clear Christian ethos of St.Johns. I was so proud of all the children and the staff and would like to thank everyone for the support, kind words and prayers.
