SIAMS

In all Church of England Schools an OFSTED inspection is complemented by a visit from the SIAMS inspector (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools).

The purpose of the SIAMS inspection is to judge the school’s effectiveness as a Church of England school. The inspector visits a range of lessons (not just RE), plus events such as Collective Worship (assemblies) and generally forms a judgement on life at the school, particularly regarding the extent to which our Christian ethos translates into actual practice on an everyday basis.

Our most recent SIAMS inspection was in 2016. The overall judgement for the inspection was Good in all categories and relates to our distinctiveness and effectiveness as a Church school
