School Performance and Ofsted
We have weekly Focussed Intervention Partnership (FIP) meetings with our Trust Leader to discuss how our school is developing and growing. During the FIP meeting, we discuss school improvement, safeguarding, health and safety and staff wellbeing and welfare.
We also have 4-6 visits annually from an experienced school improvement advisor who will help us with accurate self-evaluation work.
We also work alongside trust colleagues to do annual monitoring checks such as for Safeguarding, Health and safety, SENd and also for specifically identified development work through our involvement with the School’s partnership programme (SPP). During an SPP visit, senior leaders from other schools will come to help to dig deep into a specific issue affecting the school and to help us to identify ways to improve things.
The Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) inspects schools to provide an independent assessment of the quality and standards of education in schools and check whether pupils are achieving as much as they can.
Inspectors will make judgements on the following:
- overall effectiveness
and the 4 key judgements:
- the quality of education
- behaviour and attitudes
- personal development
- leadership and management
and, where relevant, judgements on the quality of provision in:
- early years education
- the sixth form
Inspectors use the following 4-point scale to make all judgements:
- grade 1: outstanding
- grade 2: good
- grade 3: requires improvement
- grade 4: inadequate

In addition, all Church of England schools undergo a Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS). The purpose of SIAMS is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of a school as a church school. The key question posed by SIAMS is how effective is the school's distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling all pupils and adults to flourish?
In order to evaluate this, all schools are inspected on the following seven strands, which are closely linked to the Church of England Vision for Education Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good (Autumn 2016):
Vision and Leadership
Wisdom, knowledge and skills
Character development: hope, aspiration and courageous advocacy
Community and living well together
Dignity and respect
The impact of collective worship
The effectiveness of religious education.
Blaby Stokes C of E Primary School was last inspected in June 2018 and was rated as Satisfactory.
