Ofsted report/ SIAMS report

Our latest Ofsted Report was completed in December 2019 which was a great success.  The school was graded as Good.

A brief summary is detailed below:

“Pupils at Mortimer St. John’s are enthusiastic and confident learners. When children start in Reception they receive a high level of care. This helps them settle quickly, feel secure and make a positive start. The school’s Christian ethos is reflected in the strong relationships between pupils and staff.

Leaders and teachers set high standards for behaviour and learning. They want pupils to grow up to become increasingly responsible. Pupils are passionate about the environment.  They work hard in lessons, enjoying their learning. Teachers make every effort to make sure that lessons are engaging. Pupils say, ‘We are always doing exciting things.’ Pupils
from an early age have opportunities to practise basic skills so that they remember their learning.”

Share your views through parent view

Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.

When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.

Please register with an email address and a password at Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.

Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.

If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.
