Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
The inspection of a school provides an independent external evaluation of its effectiveness and a diagnosis of what it should do to improve. It is based on a range of evidence available to inspectors that is evaluated against a national framework.
There are four key areas a school is judged on:
- the achievement of pupils at the school
- the quality of teaching in the school
- the behaviour and safety of pupils at the school
- the quality of leadership in, and management of, the school
Woodchurch CE Primary School was most recently inspected by Ofsted in March 2013.
For all Inspection Judgements, the school was given a rating of 2. According to Ofsted’s own criteria, this translates as ‘good’.

The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) process has been devised by the National Society to standardise inspection practices and judgements in all Church of England and Methodist Schools and to meet the requirements of Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.
SIAMS/S48 judges the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a Church of England school and aims to help schools improve as church schools.
The main focus is in the outcomes, i.e. the impact of provision rather than the provision itself.
There are four key questions:
- How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
- What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
- How effective is the religious education?
- How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?
Woodchurch CE Primary School was most recently inspected by SIAS in November 2016.
Our denominational inspection graded us a ‘Good’ Church of England School.
