Standards & Performance
Our most recent Ofsted inspection took place in February 2013.
We received an 'outstanding' grading and the school was described as 'exceptional'.
Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools
We received our most recent SIAMS inspection in March 2018, in which the school was judged to be outstanding.
What does SIAMS tell me?
Church of England schools are established primarily for the communities they are located in. They are inclusive and serve equally those who are of the Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith.
Church schools are recognised for their distinctive Christian ethos and the impact this has on standards and all round education. The proportions of Church schools regarded as ‘outstanding’ (by Ofsted) is much higher than the national norm and yet the Church schools are fully inclusive.
The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a Church school, and how well the distinctive Christian character and ethos of the school ensure the development and achievement of the whole child or young person.
Swimbridge School is proud to be consistently performing above national averages. Below are the results for our Year 6 2022-23 pupils.
