Belgrave St. Peter’s Primary School Praised in SIAMS report.
Belgrave St. Peter’s Primary School, Thurcaston Road, Leicester are proud to report that the school is ‘living up to its foundation as a Church school and is enabling pupils and adults to flourish’ after a recent Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) by the Church of England.
The school, which is part of Rise Multi Academy Trust, was described as having ‘real sense of Christian love’ which is ‘intrinsic in every aspect of school life’. A SIAMS inspection reviews how effective a church school is delivering a strong Christian ethos, to enable pupils and staff and the school community to thrive.
The school joined Rise in January 2022 and since then has made many positive changes, which were noted during the inspection ‘The MAT provides coaching and support giving clear direction to many staff at the start of their teaching career.’ The inspector also commented that leaders have created ‘a deep and meaningful culture’ where ‘everyone is treasured’, highlighting the importance of the ‘intensive support from Rise’.
Furthermore, Rise encourages schools to work collectively to build their community both within the church and wider area, which was noted as inspectors commented ‘links with other schools within the MAT enable pupils to experience life beyond their locality.
Mark Cole, CEO at Rise commented, ‘We are delighted with the SIAMS outcome. School leaders and staff have worked really hard to make the improvements that were seen by inspectors.’
Courtney Ouriach, Headteacher said ‘ Staff at Belgrave St. Peters are proud to share our SIAMS report with our school community. We found the entire inspection a positive experience and are proud that the inspector was able to see how we embody our vision and values day to day as a school family."
