In the Spring Term 2012 we received Inspection visits from both Ofsted and Ely Diocese as a church school.
The report states that overall the school is satisfactory and recognises the strengths of our school in the pupils’ behaviour, our sports provision and community links, as well as our creative curriculum.
It also gives us key actions to put in place in order to improve:
Increase pupils’ ability and confidence in using and applying their mental mathematics and phonics knowledge by:
− ensuring that skills are taught systematically, according to pupils’ prior knowledge
− providing good opportunities for pupils to make use of what they have learnt.
Raise the proportion of good or better teaching by:
− always providing challenging work that matches the full range of pupils’ abilities throughout each lesson
− using teachers’ marking to guide pupils on how to improve their work.
Ensure that leaders at all levels increase the rigour in monitoring teaching and learning so that whole school policies are fully implemented by all.

SIAS (Church inspection):
The inspector was really impressed with our school and praised many aspects as you will read in the report. We would like to thank the governors, parents, children and staff, who gave their time during the day to speak to the inspector and share their views.
The headlines are:
· The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Stanground St John’s Primary School as a Church of England school is outstanding.
· The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is outstanding at meeting the needs of all learners.
· The impact of collective worship on the school community is good.
· The effectiveness of the leadership and management of the school as a church school is outstanding.
It also gives us key actions to put in place in order to improve further. We are looking forward to working together to continue to take our school forward as a church school.
