A ‘caring and nurturing’ primary school in Clevedon has been praised following its latest inspection.
St Nicholas Chantry Primary School, in Highdale Avenue, was awarded a good rating by the National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) after it was visited in July.
The inspection report highlights the focus placed on individual pupils as well as the encouragement, compassion and respect they receive from staff.
The report, written by inspector Jane Tibbs, states: “The Christian distinctiveness of the school is exemplified through the strong focus on each child as an individual and has led to all pupils’ needs being met within a caring and nurturing environment.
“The warmth which emanates throughout the school comes from the love and respect which is shown by everyone in the school community.
“As a result, pupils are secure and happy in this welcoming school, as evidenced by the attendance figures.”
Headteacher Peter Treasure-Smith put the positive report down to the work of the school’s staff, saying: “We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our SIAMS report and believe it is a true reflection of our school.
“As headteacher and the governing body we are very grateful to everyone involved with the school for their hard work and commitment which has led to this result.”
