SIAMS Report

Respecting, Generous, Achieving

SIAMS´╗┐ Report

All Church of England dioceses use the National Society's framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools (SIAMS). SIAMS focuses on the effect that the Christian ethos of the church school has on the children that attend it. The principle objective of a SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.


This is an inclusive school, where the vision of achieving is fulfilled in how the curriculum is designed to meet the needs of every pupil. Everyone feels safe to contribute without risk or worry. There are good opportunities for the pupils to champion causes and explore diversity and difference. As a result pupils feel proud and empowered to live out the vision of the school. The school’s vision of respect – generosity – achievement drives the induction and training of all staff, enabling all to flourish. Leaders cherish every adult and recognise them as an important part of the whole school. Collective worship is joyful and uplifting. Pupils enjoy leading and monitoring many aspects daily. This is complemented by weekly visitors, parental involvement and links with the local church. RE has high priority in the school and is exceptionally well led. Academic rigour is evident in learning providing a safe place to explore the theological, philosophical and social human sciences.


Our last SIAMS report was in January 2019. The full report can be viewed on the Church of England website and below.
