As a good school, we had our last ‘ungraded’ Ofsted Inspection in September 2022.

Highlights from the report include:

  • Pupils love attending this happy school where there is a positive attitude to learning.
  • Leaders and teachers have high expectations for all pupils. Pupils work hard in lessons. Learning is well-sequenced and precise.
  • Pupils feel safe in school. Adults listen to them.  Bullying in rare.
  • The school’s Christian values permeate through all aspects of school life. Pupils show respect and act with love to others. 
  • Leaders have made development of staff a key priority. As a result, teachers’ subject knowledge is strong.  Staff are proud to work at Alverstoke Junior.  They feel part of a close-knit team.
  • Leaders ensure that the curriculum supports pupils’ personal development well. Pupils learn to appreciate difference and to care for their environment.
  • Relationships are strong. Parents and carers speak highly of the school. As one parent wrote, “My daughter feels safe, secure and is thriving.”

Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) 

As a Church of England school, we also have a SIAMS inspection every 5 years.  SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school's vision on pupils and adults.  This involves looking at the school's Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling pupils and the school community to flourish.  
Our last inspection was in November 2023.  Highlights from our inspection report include:
  • The Christian vision is clearly articulated by all and is expressed through the core values of Love, Courage and Respect.  These underpin a creative and diverse curriculum.
  • There is a strong sense of an aspirational school community committed to supporting one another to flourish.
  • Inspired by the vision, leaders create a culture of justice and equality.  The vision is lived out through caring relationships.  
  • Pupils behave well, serving one another through their various leadership roles.  All are encouraged to be agents of change.
  • Mental health and well-being are prioritised because all are nurtured within an inclusive school community.  Vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils are supported well, enabling them to flourish.
  • Strong and skilled leadership of religious education (RE) means there is a well-sequenced, creative and balanced curriculum.  Pupils are challenged to question and debate, applying their understanding of a range of world religions or world views.
