Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools

All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the National Society's framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS), to carry out inspections.  The principal objective of a SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school by focusing on the effect that the Christian ethos has on the children who attend it.

Our last SIAMS inspection took place in May 2017 and we are very proud of the findings:

The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is good at meeting the needs of all learners. The school’s nurturing ethos and Christian care within and between all members of the school family are excellent and result in strong relationships across the school. They underpin the caring and welcoming atmosphere of the school and the strong sense of community that is immediately appreciated by parents who are new to the school.

The high levels of care, nurture and guidance, where everyone is valued as an individual, demonstrate the distinctive Christian ethos of the school in action. All pupils are enabled to grow academically and socially in a stimulating school environment.

Pupils’ behaviour, including their attitudes to learning, is exemplary and they respond with openness and enthusiasm to the curriculum.

Children form good relationships with one another and staff and show concern for each other, which they attribute to the school’s Christian ethos.

Pupils feel special, safe, well cared for and valued.

Opportunities within RE lessons when pupils ask big and puzzling questions and discuss their viewpoints with others make a significant contribution to social and moral development. Some pupils were so engaged in discussing the symbolism of communion that they were keen to continue their debate over lunch.

Children demonstrate respect and acceptance of people of other faiths.

The resulting impact of the Christian ethos is clearly seen in the high standards of behaviour and positive attitudes of the pupils for whom the adults in the school provide good role models.

Strong nurturing relationships permeate the school and parents cite the caring Christian ethos as the reason for this.
