In all Church of England Schools an OFSTED inspection is complemented by a visit from the SIAMS inspector (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools).
The purpose of the SIAMS inspection is to judge the school’s effectiveness as a Church of England school. The inspector visits a range of lessons (not just RE), plus events such as Collective Worship and generally forms a judgement on life at the school, particularly regarding the extent to which our Christian ethos translates into actual practice on an everyday basis.
Our most recent SIAMS inspection was 12th March 2019 - the outcome is yet to be announced.
Our previous SIAMS inspection was 10th March 2014. The overall judgement for that inspection was Outstanding in all categories and relates to our distinctiveness and effectiveness as a Church school.
