Christian Distinctiveness

Our last Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) Report (December 2016) found the school to be outstanding. They said:

The distinctiveness and effectiveness of St Botolph’s as a Church of England school are outstanding

  • Well-developed and embedded Christian values are integral in driving forward school improvement and enabling all pupils to realise their God-given potential.
  • A clear inclusive vision for the school, rooted in the model of Christ, is well supported by the wider community, including by parents from other faiths.
  • Collective worship which is well matched to the pupils’ needs is integral to raising aspirations and reflects the inherent spirituality of the school.
  • Effective and enthusiastic leadership of religious education (RE) has ensured significant improvements in provision since the last denominational inspection
