Our latest SIAMS report was completed in March 2017 which was a great success, the school was graded as Outstanding. A brief summary is detailed below.

The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Mortimer St Mary’s CE Junior School as a Church of England school are outstanding. This is because:

  •  The passion of school leaders, especially the headteacher, ensures that the distinctive Christian values in the
    school have a direct impact on the attitudes, respectful relationships and exemplary behaviour of all pupils
    and staff.
  •  Collective worship provides all pupils with deep experiences of reflection from which they shape their lives.
  •  The inclusive and mutually supportive link with the local church has a significant impact on collective
    worship, giving a rich experience of Anglican tradition.
  •  The school’s involvement in the local community and links with global communities generates an
    understanding of and respect for diverse cultures and faith traditions.
