Here are a few of the comments made by Ofsted about our school.
"Church Lench is an outstanding school. It is at the heart of the community and held in high regard by all parents and carers."
"Pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics due to the consistently good and often outstanding teaching they receive. All the parents who returned the questionnaire agree."
"Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. They are polite and courteous to visitors and kind to each other. Their attitudes to learning are excellent."
"The leadership of the headteacher is outstanding. As a result of her high expectations and strategic deployment of the team of adults and helpers in the school, she has broadened and enriched the curriculum which has contributed significantly to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of every pupil."
"Challenging work and special provision is made for gifted and talented, and more- able pupils."
"Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs are very well supported by a number of dedicated teachers and teaching assistants, ably led by the special educational needs co-ordinator. As a result, the overwhelming majority make good or outstanding progress and are closing the gap on the national average."
"Every child and every parent or carer who responded to the questionnaire agree that the teaching at the school is of a high quality."
"It is central to the ethos of the school that all develop a role and take on responsibilities that help to mould their character and moral values, developing a strong sense of giving something back to the school, village and global community."
"Pupils are extremely happy and keen to come to school, to learn and make a contribution to the school and local community."
"The curriculum is rich and constantly evolving to meet the spiritual, moral, social and cultural needs of all pupils."

Here are a few comments from the SIAS Report
"The school is a welcoming, friendly and joyful place where relationships are strong and firmly based on Christian values."
"The creative curriculum and stimulating environment provide rich and varied opportunities to promote the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development."
"Parents speak of a family atmosphere with inclusion at the centre of all school activities. This has a positive impact on learners’ personal development."
"Pupils are at the heart of everything that happens in this strongly Christian school. They enjoy their work and are proud of it, finding lessons very exciting and creative."
"The imaginative use of space in the outside learning environment for work, play, forest schools and Eco work has an enriching effect on children’s enjoyment of the natural world and on their excellent progress in spiritual development."
"Parents speak of ‘children who listen to, look out for and respect each other’."
"Vigorous and highly creative leadership from the headteacher, working with children, parents, staff and governors, has led to the development of a strong Christian vision which permeates the heart of this church school."
"The headteacher is an outstanding role model and is constantly open to new ideas which will help the school to achieve this vision and governors are robust in monitoring these initiatives."
