Statutory Inspection Of Anglican And Methodist Schools (SIAMS)

Each Church school and academy is required to have a Section 48 Inspection for a judgement on its distinctiveness and effectiveness as a Church of England school. 

The purpose of the SIAMS inspection is to verify the school’s evaluation of its performance in relation to the ways in which each school’s theologically rooted Christian vision drives its work and enables the school to live up to its foundation as a Church school.

SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults. This involves looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish.

We are pleased to share that our current SIAMS inspection grade is ‘Excellent’.

The palpable Christian vision and values have theological and biblical depth and purpose for the community.
They give hope to everyone, even ‘when the world goes up and down’

“The Christian vision drives the diligent work which successfully raises the aspiration and achievement of
pupils and staff.

“Inclusive, pupil-led collective worship powerfully illustrates the biblical roots of the Christian vision and
values. Regular prayer gives spiritual rhythm to each day. Pupils value special times when they can pray in
creative ways.

“Pupils take meaningful action to improve the lives of others locally. Their understanding of themselves as
agents for change in a global sense is less well developed.”
