The inspection findings indicate that Wateringbury Church of England Primary School is living up to its foundation as a Church School.

Our SIAMS inspection was carried out on Wednesday 6th December 2023. We were very pleased with the outcome of the report and the findings of the inspection. The inspector could see what a nurturing environment our school was and that all members of our school community were flourishing. 

Please take a moment to read the full report below but here are some of our favourite bits:

"Wateringbury Church of England Primary School is an inclusive community built on joy, respect and genuine compassion for one another."

"Knowing their [pupils' and staff's] safety, value and wellbeing is a priority for leaders has positively transformed the culture of the school."

"The passionate staff team wholeheartedly serve and nurture every member of the school community. As a result, pupils thrive and grow, especially the most vulnerable."

"There is a shared commitment by all staff that every child is known and understood. Through this knowledge, individualised interventions and pastoral support are put in place. Combined with strong nurture provision and practice, pupils thrive and make progress from whatever their starting point."

"Joyful singing and moments of reflection hold the school through good and challenging times."
