To unlock every child’s potential as a unique child of God

Mountnessing C of E Primary School

Mountnessing Church of England Primary School is a growing village school where the pupils "are proud to be members of a school community where everyone is valued" [Ofsted 2022].  


Congratulations to the team at Mountnessing Church of England Primary school for the glowing Ofsted inspection report and findings in September 2022.  The school experienced an ungraded inspection, where the Ofsted team found that the school continues to be good.  Ofsted said:

"Pupils are enthusiastic about learning.  They are eager to share their knowledge."

"Leaders have carefully considered the curriculum...The curriculum is ambitious across a broad range of subjects." 


More recently, Mountessing Church of England Primary school received a SIAMS Church inspection.  

We are thrilled with the outcome of our most recent SIAMS inspection. The inspector recognised the school's hard work and could feel the loving ethos of our school. 


Below are the key strengths from the report, but you can read it in full below:


"The highly aspirational and inclusive Christian vision is built on clear biblical teaching. It ensures that pupils and adults are encouraged to flourish in all aspects of their lives.


The carefully crafted curriculum motivates and inspires pupils to learn. Leaders make a strong commitment to adapting, enhancing and supporting learning to make it fully accessible to all.


Collective worship is enriched by regular opportunities for prayer and reflection both inside and outside the school building. This creates a strong sense of community which supports pupils and adults on their spiritual journeys.


Leaders create and maintain a loving, nurturing culture in which everyone is known and cared for individually. As a result, they are able to thrive professionally, personally and in their learning.


The school has strong, mutually beneficial partnerships with the Mid-Essex Anglican Academy Trust and with local schools, the diocese and the church. These contribute significantly to leaders' ability to provide opportunities for pupils and the development of Mountnessing as a Church school."
