It is an absolute pleasure to share with you our recent SIAMS inspection result- we are EXCELLENT!
We were last inspected in 2015 where we were judged to be 'outstanding'. Since then the framework has changed, the bar raised and the outstanding grading removed. A new grading of 'excellent' was added.
Since the inspection on Tuesday 14th March, I have been informed that less the 10% of church schools are judged as excellent. It is a real honour to have the hard work of our staff and leadership team recognised. The inspector spoke with leaders from across the school and those responsible for a range of areas. Each leader spoke with passion and dedication, allowing the inspector to see the inspirational leadership at Tutshill School.
I would like to thank all of the staff for their hard work and dedication. I would also like to thank Mrs Howells and Mrs Driver for their role in the leadership of RE and collective worship. Mrs Howells guided and inspired the staff in the run-up and throughout the inspection and offered her knowledge and support to all. I would also like to thank the parents that came to talk with the inspector. It was a joy to know that they felt the vision and the values flow through the school - the golden thread. Finally, I'd like to thank all of the children. Alongside the inspector, I was able to speak with children, watch lessons, look at books and observe collective worship. The children were articulate, spoke with conviction and a sense of love for one another. The school vision clearly allows children to flourish.
Please read the attached report. I am sure you will be overjoyed, as I am, to know that our school is not only judged as excellent, but the children receive a wonderful education and are being well prepared for their future.
