Purpose and focus of SIAMS Inspections

The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate how effective the school is in its distinctive Christian vision; and how this is established and promoted by leadership at all levels, to enable pupils and adults to flourish. 

This is evaluated through seven core 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

The timing of SIAMS inspections is now determined by the overall judgement of the previous Section 48 inspection:

  • Schools judged good or outstanding overall will normally be inspected every 5 years
  • Schools judged satisfactory or inadequate overall will be inspected every 3-5 years.

Our last inspection was on 9th and 10th February 2016 and we were graded GOOD.
