OFSTED and Church School Inspection

As a Church Aided school, Bowdon Church School is subject to inspection from both OFSTED and SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools).  Our last OFSTED inspection took place in 2006, where the school was judged to be outstanding.  There was an interim assessment in 2010 and since then OFSTED has checked our data, specifically the progress of our children and has not visited.   In that period we have had two SIAMS inspections.  A link to the latest report is below.


The school is is always actively involved in school improvement and research, currently undertaking a curriculum review.  Over the years we have  been monitored by a School Improvement Partner appointed by the Local Authority and we are currently involved in a peer review project with other local schools.
