Two of our primary schools celebrate recent SIAMS successes

First published on: 17th April 2024

Two of our primary schools are celebrating recent successes with their SIAMS inspections.

Trinity All Saints Church of England Primary School in Bingley and St Matthew’s Primary in Leeds both have been inspected as part of SIAMS, the Church of England’s statutory inspection mechanism.

Trinity All Saints Primary was found to be a welcoming and supportive community: ‘Everyone is welcomed and accepted for who they are at this loving Church school.’

Inspectors found that ‘Respect, forgiveness and compassion are lived out daily. Regardless of need, background or ability every pupil is supported and challenged to unlock their potential.’

‘Without exception, all staff share an uncompromising ambition for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged to thrive. An enquiry-based approach results in teaching that is challenging, creative and interactive that encourages children of all ages to express their own moral and philosophical ideas.’

‘The curriculum is enhanced by a wealth of first-hand experiences and extracurricular activities. Compassionate leaders create a culture that nurtures the well-being and good mental health of all.’

Headteacher Catherine Taylor said: “We were delighted by the report - of course, every member of our school community contributes to our success and we would like to thank pupils, parents and carers, staff and governors for everything they do on a daily basis.”

Of their recent very positive SIAMS result, Gemma Crawford, Headteacher of St Matthew’s Primary, said: “The whole school community at St Matthew’s C of E Primary School are incredibly proud of our most recent SIAMs outcome.

“It was an extremely positive experience and a joy to be able to share how St Matthew’s is living up to its foundation as a church school.  

“The report highlighted ‘kindness is at the heart of St Matthew’s’ and ‘The Christian vision is well-embedded and underpins relationships throughout this diverse school community’.  

“We feel the report captures the true essence of our school and the work that the whole school community is doing to ensure everyone flourishes.”
