NATIONAL SOCIETY STATUTORY INSPECTION of ANGLICAN and METHODIST SCHOOLS REPORT





















SCHOOL CONTEXT


St John’s Stonefold is a smaller than average primary school. The proportion of children eligible for pupil premium or who have special educational needs is below the national average. The school has good links with the church of St James’, Haslingden, the church being 1.4 miles away from St John’s school. St John’s Church, once adjacent to the school, was closed many years ago. The parish is currently in an interregnum.


The distinctiveness and effectiveness of St John’s as a Church of England School are good:


The school’s leaders ensure that Christian principles and practice support a community in which every person is valued and can flourish.

Collective worship in this church school is a highly valued part of each day and has a transformational impact on the lives of the children.

Supportive and purposeful relationships are founded on a clear understanding of the importance of each person in the eyes of God. They make a significant contribution to the well being of each child.


Areas to improve:


Undertake a full review of the school’s Christian distinctiveness to raise awareness of its strengths as a church school and to guide future developments.

Develop understanding of a series of core Christian values that will underpin the daily life of the school and inform attitudes, behaviour and spiritual development.
