SIAMS Inspection Report

Date: 28th Feb 2017 @ 10:20am

STATUTORY INSPECTION of ANGLICAN AND METHODIST SCHOOLS REPORT

On 2nd February 2017 Crowton School was Inspected by the Church of England's Education Office.

All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the Church of England Education Office's framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.

We were delighted and very proud to achieve an OUTSTANDING inspection, which showed we were outstanding in all of the four core areas:

  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective is the Religious Education? (in VA schools and academies)
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?

In the Autumn term- we will be looking at 'Hope.' 

The term leads us onto new topics. We continue to choose new topics for discussion each week in our collective worship and include a big question that we discuss with the children.

Keep an eye on our ethos board of achievement- each week new achievements are added such as music certificates, sporting achievements and even reading awards.

We give our Star of the Week certificates every week alongside our Value Awards. The ethos team quite often include drama in their collective worship and are always keen to develop ideas for competitions.

Literacy Project

Date: 25th Oct 2016 @ 10:55am

Transformation of Environments and Social Responsibility

During the first half of Autumn Term,  our topic in literacy has been ‘transformation of environments and social responsibility’. Each class group have been studying a text;

Class 1 – The Something (Rebecca Cobb)

Class 2 – The Greenling (Levi Pinfold)

Class 3 – The Promise (Nicola Davies)

Class 4 – (Varmints (Helen Ward)

To enhance our learning the whole school were involved in a literacy project led by a specialist education company, Literacy Counts. This included a series of professional workshops for all classes, including dramatisation -  to encourage evocative writing; art -developed from gathering words, phrases and poem extracts; music – inspired by the children, using extracts of figurative language, including phrases and ideas put together in the form of a school anthem.

We invited parents, family, friends and Governors to watch a performance of our new school anthem entitled, We Achieve, We Believe. Matt Baker, the musician involved with the writing of the anthem, was here to accompany the children. There was an opportunity afterwards to view the gallery of artwork and see the children’s written work in their classes.

Courses of lessons can be paid for in full or in monthly installments in a variety of ways including by debit or credit cards. Music for Life has developed a website to make it easier for parents and guardians to book, renew and pay for instrumental lessons online. Financial support with the cost of lessons may be available in cases of hardship. Please contact Music for Life before booking if you would like to discuss.

A Place of Safety by Gripping Yarns

Date: 1st Feb 2016 @ 3:28pm

On Monday 1st February Classes 2, 3 and 4 received a visit from Gripping Yarns, an association of storytelling performers who are all actors with an expertise in theatre for young people. They delivered a story called 'Place of Safety' to support our work on internet safety and link to Safer Internet Day on 9th February.

The internet, mobile communications and e-mail offer young people unprecedented and exciting  opportunities to explore and interact from the safety of their own school, home or bedroom. 'A Place of Safety' is concerned with how children interact in  the electronic communication environment, and with how they  can do so with greater security.

 

Place of Safety tells the story of Jordan, who is struggling to build new friendships after moving school following a necessary family separation.  For Jordan, the internet, e-mail, chat and messaging offer an ideal way to keep in touch with old friends, and make new friends with interests similar to his own.  He is befriended by an apparently more experienced chat room user, with whom he develops a friendship, and with whom he shares personal information and photographs.  His trust in his new friend diminishes as he is pressured to allow greater degrees of contact and more personal information.  Having already taken risks with his online friendship, he is too scared to tell anyone what has happened in case he gets into trouble and he is considering agreeing to his new friend’s requests when a real-life friend from school uses online media to contact him, and encourage him get help from their teacher. 

 

Place of Safety was written for Cheshire Education Safeguarding in Education to promote safe use of the Internet and electronic communications media, encouraging children adopt an attitude of healthy scepticism towards what people tell them online, whilst stressing that using the Internet can and should be great fun.
