As you may be aware on 26th April we had our SIAMS inspection. (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) This is carried out by the Church of England every five years and focuses on how we are distinctive as a church school and how this supports our effectiveness.
There were two inspectors who spent the day with us and they were extremely thorough. They talked to staff, parents, governors and spent lots of time talking to children. They also joined Year 4 for their class assembly, observed RE lessons and spent time looking at books.
I am very pleased to inform you that the inspectors decided that Cradley CE is an ‘Outstanding’ church school. The report can be found under 'Key Information' tab. Thank you once again to the parents who came to speak to the inspectors and to our amazing children.
