A Letter from Mr Justin Reeve, Tockwith Primary Head Teacher
On Friday 3rd February, we had our Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS). We were inspected against three judgements and then awarded the overall judgement of OUTSTANDING. Our previous judgement was Good and the next inspection will be in 5 years. We are extremely pleased to share the outcomes and some quotes from the final report as follows:
- The school's ethos, based on the clearly stated Christian values of perseverance, creativity and friendship, enables children to develop excellent personal skills and to make good progress in their studies.
- Excellent partnership with the church through the local incumbent, the diocese and lay members of the local community enriches children's education both academically and more widely.
- Standards are rising steadily because innovative and inspiring leadership by the school's headteacher is based on robust evaluation of all aspects of the children's education.
The inspector was blown away by our children and remarked:
"Their spiritual and moral growth thrive in the open atmosphere where ideas are valued and creativity flourishes."
"They are exceptionally tolerant and feel secure expressing their ideas, even when different from their friends"
"Excellent relationships and friendship are promoted from the earliest age"
I hope you enjoy reading the report as much as I did. I am very proud of Team Tockwith.
