School judged Oustanding by SIAMS
East Morton CE Primary School received its SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) on Friday 10th February. The inspector, Mr Nigel Castledine, spent a whole day in school and during his visit, he met with a number of children, observed lessons, met with staff, met with representatives of the governing body, observed Collective Worship, met with parents and finally met with Reverend Mike Cansdale and John Froud.
As you will see from the report (below), the school was graded as good at its last inspection in 2012 and we are delighted that Mr Castledine judged our school to be outstanding upon the completion of his recent visit. He was particularly impressed with our school’s ‘broad, balanced and creative curriculum’, which he felt provides ‘time for reflection, awe and wonder, and the development of pupils’ higher order thinking skills in spiritual experiences that challenge and inspire’.
