SIAMS Explained


The SIAMS inspections focus around four key questions, the answers to which combine to substantiate a headline judgement in answer to the question, ‘How distinctive and effective is this school as a Church of England School?’. The other questions are as follows:


  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective is the religious education?
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a Church school

Those who join the school part way through a year or key stage feel welcomed and make friends quickly. Pupils enjoy school, as shown by their high attendance. They like learning and work hard” (Ofsted, November 2018)
