Church School inspection

Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools

Church School Inspection

The school was last inspected in March 2018. It was judged “good” in the distinctiveness and effectiveness as a Church of England school.

Established strengths:

The Christian values of respect, responsibility, courage and hope are firmly embedded in all aspects of school life. These values impact on very good pupil behaviour and positive attitudes to learning by all.

The headteacher, ably supported by the governing body, has a clear vision for the strategic development of Brabourne as a church school. This is effectively shared with pupils, staff, parents and the local community who are very supportive of the school’s ethos.

Pupils’ spirituality is developed through a range of experiences including a broad curriculum, outdoor learning, trips and charitable fundraising. As a result, pupils’ well-being and overall attainment is good.
