As a church school we are also inspected by the National Society who make judgements about 4 areas:

    The Christian character of the school
    The impact of Collective Worship on the school community
    The teaching of Religious Education
    The leadership and management of the school as a church school

The latest inspection took place on 19th January 2016 during which the school was judged to be good in each of the above areas.  The inspector wrote:

The distinctiveness and effectiveness of St Helen's CE Primary School are good

The school is underpinned with Christian values such as trust, hope and forgiveness and coupled with the school's close links with the church these ensure children and their families are nurtured and supported in a caring environment, where children can learn.

School leaders know their community well and are committed to removing any barriers to learning.

As a result, children's attitudes to learning are more positive and enthusiastic.  Most children are now making expected progress and some make better than expected progress with standards close to national averages.

The provision of spiritual spaces in the environment is encouraging the children's spiritual development.
