Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)
Purpose and focus of SIAMS inspections
The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school, and how well the distinctive Christian character and ethos of the school ensure the development and achievement of the whole child or young person.
This is evaluated through four core questions:
- How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
- What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
- How effective is the Religious Education? (in VA schools and academies)
- How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?
Our most recent SIAMS inspection took place in March 2017 and we were delighted to be validated as an Outstanding Church School. You can read the report by clicking the link below.
