Governors and staff at Stickney were delighted with their recent report following their church school’s inspection, as the school is recognised by parents and the wider community as an “exemplary centre of compassionate care”. The report states: “Since the previous inspection, the school’s effectiveness as a Church of England school has continued to grow, enabling pupils and adults to flourish”.
The Executive Headteacher, Rowena Thompson and the Governing Board wishes to thank all of the staff for their hard work and their support for each other and for all of the children in their care. The report stated: “Teaching and support staff are deeply committed to providing the very best for every pupil. Consequently, they work effectively together to help those facing barriers to learning make progress.”
Everyone at the school also wishes to thank the parents for their tremendous ongoing support. The report commented: “Parents speak highly of the school and make comments such as, ‘it’s easy to talk to everyone’, ‘walking into school is like home from home’ and ‘I feel like I’ve gained friends’.
The work of the Leadership Team is recognised in the report as the inspector writes: The strong Christian leadership of the Executive Headteacher, ably supported by other school leaders, ensures that all members of the school community know that they are valued, loved and constantly supported as part of God’s family. The inspector also comments on the highly committed and skilled leadership of the RE subject lead which inspire and direct children to succeed in this area of the curriculum. Pupils describe their lessons as ‘the best’ and ‘cool’, with their teacher making RE fun and relevant”.
The Executive Headteacher also wished to thank the pupils for being loving and caring towards each other especially the church councillors, the prefects and the Young leaders for all their valuable contributions to school life. The inspector goes on to write: “Individuality and inclusivity is celebrated and pupils feel nurtured to grow as unique individuals, loved by all. A wide range of extra-curricular opportunities enable pupils to flourish in areas beyond the formal school curriculum.”
