Ofsted inspection January 2014
What is an Ofsted inspection?
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. Ofsted inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
Every week, they carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England, and publish the results on their website.
The aim of all this work is to promote improvement and value for money in the services they inspect and regulate, so that children and young people, parents and carers and employers benefit.
What is a SIAMS inspection?
SIAMS inspection focuses on the effect that the Christian ethos of the church school has on the children and young people who attend it. Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles, which reflect their particular local context or church tradition in order to be distinctive and effective. Inspectors will, therefore, not be looking to apply a preconceived template of what a church school should be like.
Parents and carers can give their views of Wilden All Saints CE Primary School at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View. When we are notified of our next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to the inspectors using Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted's paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.
Please register with an email address and a password at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/. Once your login has been activated , it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc. Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about Wilden All Saints CE Primary School, and how to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.
If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like to help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.
