A CHURCH of England Primary school that recently signed up to the Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust (ODST) has been classed as ‘Outstanding’ by national inspectors.Narniaforweb

The Blake Church of England Primary School in Witney was praised in the recent National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican Methodist Schools report. Inspectors noted: “The school has productive links with a school in Nigeria and the multi-cultural Christ The Sower School in Milton Keynes. These links give pupils a personalised understanding of diversity and a genuine empathy.

“Governors are skilled at strategic direction exemplified by the careful way in which the Academy process was undertaken and the joining of the ODST to secure the school’s long term interests.”

They also noted the strong links between the school and St Mary’s, Cogges. They added: “The astute parish priest makes a commendable contribution to this church school pastorally and in governance. The school also makes good use of visitors such as the Prime Minister and the Bishop of Dorchester to enhance pupils’ appreciation of others and their place in the world.”
