Loving for Today, Learning for Tomorrow, Forever in Faith


The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) is the Church of England and Methodist Church’s outworking of the requirements of Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.


Inspectors will grade the school on the following over-arching 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?”


The question is explored through seven strands:


Strand 1: Vision and Leadership
Strand 2: Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills
Strand 3: Character Development: Hope, Aspiration and Courageous Advocacy

Strand 4: Community and Living Well Together
Strand 5: Dignity and Respect
Strand 6: The impact of collective worship
Strand 7: The effectiveness of religious education
