St Richard's CE Primary

Ofsted & SIAMS

As a Church of England School, we have two inspections: one from OfSTED, the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills,  and one from the Church of England, called a SIAMS Inspection (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools).


Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

The school received its first Section 5 Ofsted Inspection since joining the LDBS Academies Trust on 8th and 9th March 2023.

The school was graded 'Good' in all areas.
