On 12th January 2022, Frieth had their SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection.
The evaluation schedule has one overarching inspection question: How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels (including governors), in enabling pupils and adults to flourish.
We are thrilled to announce that Frieth have received an overall grading of good with ‘pockets of excellence’ including an ‘Excellent’ grading for Collective Worship.
The inspector described the school as a “a warm and welcoming school that wholeheartedly believes all can shine”, and acknowledged that “there is a demonstrable culture of aspiring to be the best you can be.”
He also recognised that all staff are “are deeply committed to ensuring that pupils, including those considered to be vulnerable, have their individual needs met.”
In addition, he identified that “the curriculum is complemented by a wealth of enrichment opportunities including sports festivals, themed days, and forest school. As a result, pupils’ self-confidence, wellbeing, and love of learning flourishes”, and that “the curriculum is underpinned by the school’s growth mindset. The emphasis on perseverance and resilience allows pupils to thrive academically.”
It also speaks volumes that in the report our only development points are to share our fantastic practice.
We are extremely proud of everything we do at Frieth, and would like congratulate and thank all of our staff, pupils and parents, especially those who supported us on the day.
