John Mayne School, Biddenden (Church of England, Voluntary Controlled)

We have a close relationship with our local Church of England Primary school, John Mayne,  Biddenden.

Alex Bienfait (Rector) and Lindi Harman (Member of All Saints Biddenden) are Foundation Governors.

A team from All Saints take it in turn to lead a weekly assembly for the school, this includes Alex Bienfait, Catherine Wilson, Julie Lupton and Lindi Harman.

The strength of our relationship with the school was demonstrated most recently in 2015 when the school was judged “Outstanding” for it’s SIAMS inspection. A quote from the report: “The work of the church and school are interwoven and it is difficult to know where one ends and the other begins.”  A copy of the report can be viewed here: John Mayne School SIAMS report 2015 (SIAMS: Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools)

The school has recently (Jan 2018) had an OFSTED inspection was judged “Good”.
