Students and staff are over the moon as a recent report graded the Hartlepool school ‘excellent’.
SIAMS, the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools, focused their inspection on the effectiveness of the school’s Christian vision - from leadership at all levels - in enabling pupils and adults to flourish.
Inspectors were impressed with the school’s passionate approach to the Christian vision.
The report stated: “Humble Christian leadership is meticulously and authentically modelled by school leaders. As a result of this, all feel valued, all are valued and all flourish.
“Leaders ensure that all adults and pupils have a voice. Those who feel small are elevated into giants through the impassioned drive that every single person should have fullness of life.
“The school’s vision is truly transformational in the authentically Christian way it boldly, and yet so humbly, enriches lives at St Peter’s Elwick.”
Katy Hill, Headteacher at St Peter’s Elwick, was thrilled with the findings: “The excellent grading is a true reflection of our fantastic pupils, dedicated staff, supportive parents and strategic governors.
“The whole school community at St Peter’s Elwick school care for one another, and strive to ensure each of us all have fullness of life.”
St Peter’s Elwick is a part of the Northern Lights Learning Trust.
