SIAMS and Ofsted


In May 2016, we enjoyed a very successful visit from the Church School inspector, who recognised Charlton Mackrell as OUTSTANDING!  This is an absolutely fantastic achievement...Please visit key documents to access the full SIAMS' report.



 'The consistently high levels of attainment and progress are closely attributed to the inclusive Christian vision, ethos and values, which define and guide school improvement.'


'Singing plays a crucial role in worship. The exceptional quality is uplifting and unifying; it demonstrates a shared outpouring of collective and individual spirituality.'

You can also find our latest SIAMS, Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools' report (May 2016) by clicking here or via the parents section of this website, filed in 'letters'.



We were delighted with the outcome of the Ofsted inspector's short, one-day, monitoring visit in January 2016, which confirmed that our school continues to be good.  The full report may be accessed via the Key documents tab.  Here are some of the highlights…


Pupils speak fondly of their love of their school. They enjoy lessons and also the wide range of extra opportunities available to them. They feel safe and, as one pupil said, ‘We are welcoming and a family’. The school’s size means that all staff too feel part of a very close-knit community.~


The curriculum is exciting and vibrant for pupils, including in the early years. It meets their academic needs well but also provides them with rich cultural experiences.


Pupils are welcoming, pleasant and polite.  They conduct themselves impeccably in lessons and around the school site.  Pupils' spiritual, moral and social development is enhanced well through aspects of the curriculum and the close links to the nearby church. 


Teachers have very high expectations of pupils’ behaviour and work. Effective routines are in place, which enable learning to proceed in a calm and purposeful manner…Relationships between staff and pupils and between pupils are a real strength at the school. Pupils work very well on their own and with their peers. Pupils respect each other’s thoughts and opinions; they encourage each other to do their best.

 The report of our our short inspection is now on the official Ofsted site with a link to 2015 performance dashboard.
