Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools
St. Stephen's receives an inspection of Collective Worship and Religious Education in addition to the Ofsted inspections. This is because it is a church school. The Statutory Inspection for Anglican and Methodist Schools inspects the school in the following areas:
- Christian Distinctiveness
- Collective Worship
- Religious Education
- Leadership and Management of the Church School
St. Stephen's is very proud of its achievements and in June 2016 the school was deemed to be outstanding. The report said "St. Stephen’s, through its distinctive Christian character, is outstanding at meeting the needs of all learners". Please note the report from November 2010 dates back to a time when we were a Junior School.
