Ofsted and SIAMS Inspections
Trottiscliffe CE Primary School is a 'Good' school with some outstanding features - as recognised in our full OFSTED inspection of March 2013. Following a further inspection in March 2017 we were judged to still be a "Good" school.
In September 2022, we were inspected under the new framework but as an 'ungraded inspection', meaning our overall judgement could not improve and we therefore remain as a 'Good' school.
The inspectors reported that:
Pupils enjoy school and are happy and highly motivated.
Leaders and staff have created a supportive environment.
Pupils feel very safe and secure.
Parents appreciate the 'family feel' that exists throughout the school.
Pupils behave well in the classrooms, playground and around school, and are polite and courteous.
Staff are caring.
Children in Early Years get off to an impressive start.
Pupils benefit from an ambitious and usually well-sequenced curriculum.
Staff teach reading skillfully.
The Maths curriculum has aspirational goals for pupils.
Pupils with SEND are identified early and are supported effectively.
In March 2018 we were graded as 'Outstanding' in our SIAMS Inspection (Statutory Inspection of Methodist and Anglican Schools) which we are very proud of and feel this reflects the ethos of our school of valuing each individual and ensuring they can fulfil their potential.
