A new school in Stowmarket has been praised as ‘outstanding’ in its first ever inspection.

Trinity Church of England VA Primary School, in Lavenham Way, received top marks across all areas in its recent SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) report.

The school opened in September 2014 and began as a refurbished self-contained corridor in the then Combs Middle School building.

Following the closure of the middle school in 2015, the rest of the building was refurbished with work completed last April.

Linda Curran-Spain, founding headteacher, said: “To us this is an amazing achievement - establishing a new school has been an incredible journey and to have our hard work and Christian ethos praised and recognised so strongly is especially pleasing. We have sought to establish a school that is child centred and forward thinking based on Christian values.”

After visiting the school in February, SIAMS inspector Linda Russell found that the school’s ‘highly effective teaching of Christian values through worship and religious education enables children to think and reflect deeply’.

This impacts ‘significantly on their spiritual and emotional development’.

Children are ‘confident to voice their opinions, take on responsibility and demonstrate the Christian values of compassion, responsibility and service in their daily lives’.

Under the ‘exemplary’ leadership and vision of the headteacher, the new school community ensures ‘all are valued and seen as unique’.

Mrs Curran-Spain added: “Team work has been a huge factor in our development so far and this reflects our whole community - learners, parents, carers, staff, governors, volunteers and our local church and diocese - who have all worked together to determine our success and create our school family. I’m incredibly proud of how far we’ve come and look forward to our continued journey.”
