Staff and pupils at Gnosall St Lawrence Church of England Primary Academy are celebrating the outcome of a recent Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) report.

The inspection evaluates how effective a school is in delivering a high-quality, Christian education.

Inspector Lesley Montgomery visited the Lowfield Lane school – which is part of the St Bartholomew's Multi Academy Trust – in April and found it to be a place where pupils are "valued" and their "voice is heard".
