A WESTON primary school has been described as "inspirational" in its latest Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) report.

St Georges Church School and Nursery was praised for living up to its ethos, which is "all things are possible for one who believes."

The school was also praised for its role in welcoming members of the local community for worship in an area of the town which has no church building.

Daphne Spitzer, the inspector, said that the school's curriculum provides "rich and creative experiences" based on Christian values.

She said: “The substantial partnership with the multi-academy trust (MAT) and with the Methodist Academies and Schools Trust (MAST) has a powerful impact. Relevant professional development through the diocese and the MAT enables staff to flourish and has beneficial outcomes on pupils’ learning.

“The school’s curriculum is shaped by its vision and provides rich and creative experiences. A set of well-chosen Christian values weaves through the curriculum and daily life at school. There is a clear focus on providing a stimulating, relevant and engaging curriculum which together meets the needs of pupils. 

“Opportunities are constantly being adapted to best develop pupils’ wide range of talents and interests.

“Inspirational leadership has embedded the Christian vision so that it strongly affects pupils’ learning, behaviour and wellbeing.

"All understand that at St Georges 'we are all crew: there are no pas-sengers' as everyone has a part to play. This is particularly true of their care for the earth shown by cleaning a local beach and their school grounds.

"Partnerships with the local care home, food bank and Weston Hospice are widening pupils’ understanding about the needs of the community beyond school."

Ms Thorn said: “We are thrilled by this inspection which confirms that our vision is not just words but is lived and breathed by every child as well as our fantastic staff team.

“We try to be a caring community and offer opportunities for every child, whatever their interests or talents. Of course, we are never complacent and will strive to be even better but it is gratifying for the staff to read such fulsome praise for the work being done at our school.”

BWMAT chief executive Nikki Edwards said: "The children are benefiting from not just a rich, varied and inspiring curriculum but they also gaining the skills and knowledge to be caring, responsible citizens as they move through their nursery and primary education and onwards in life."
