Inspiring and nurturing young hearts and minds


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) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005. The framework sets out the expectations for the conduct of the Statutory Inspection of Anglican, Methodist and ecumenical Schools under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005 and provides a process for evaluating the extent to which church schools are "distinctively and recognisably Christian institutions".

"The distinctively Christian character of the school nurtures supportive relationships between staff, governors, pupils and families and promotes excellent pastoral care".

"The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is good at meeting the needs of all learners The school’s strong focus on values (friendship, thankfulness, honesty, forgiveness, compassion and trust) is acknowledged by all to have a positive impact on relationships, behaviour and attitudes to learning". 

SIAMs Report - December 2017

The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.

Towards this objective, inspectors seek answers to four key questions.

  • 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? (in VA schools and academies)
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?
