SIAMS Inspection


As a Church of England Primary School we have a Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS).  From September 2018, this inspection for schools previously judged as 'good' or 'outstanding' will normally take place within 5 years of the previous SIAMS inspection.

The new Evaluation Schedule has one inspection question: How effective is the school's distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?

This is explored through 7 strands:

  • Vision and Leadership
  • Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills
  • Character Development: Hope, Aspiration and Courageous Advocacy
  • Community and Living Well Together
  • Dignity and Respect
  • The impact of collective worship
  • The effectiveness of religious education 

One overall grade is awarded reflecting the contribution of these strands to the flourishing of pupils and adults in a Church school.  In addition a standalone grade is awarded in all schools for collective worship.
