At least every five years the school receives a visit from an inspector who visits to undertake a Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS).
This framework sets out the expectations of the National Society (NS) for the conduct of the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005. It is designed to be used as the basis for the external moderation of a school’s SIAMS referenced self-evaluation. The framework provides a process for evaluating the extent to which church schools are ‘distinctively and recognisably Christian institutions.’ This includes:-
1. Distinctiveness must include a wholehearted commitment to putting faith and spiritual development at the heart of the curriculum.
2. The Christian ethos must permeate the whole educational experience.
3. The importance of clearly ascribed Christian values and their outworking in the life of schools is widely accepted but may need embedding.
4. High quality religious education and collective worship should continue to make major contributions to the church school’s Christian ethos.
5. Pupils should be enabled to engage seriously with and develop an understanding of the person and teachings of Jesus Christ.
6. Every child should be enabled to flourish in their potential as a child of God, as a sign and expression of the Kingdom. This is at the heart of the Church’s distinctive mission.
