Church of England Inspection Report
We are delighted to be able to share with you the school’s SIAMS
(Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) report. The
school was inspected in March 2020.
We are very proud that our school has been award Good in line with the new tougher inspection framework.
" The school has established a strong Christian vision with a clear theological underpinning. Pupils, parents and governors have a firm understanding of the vision and can articulate the positive impact it is having on all aspects of school life."
"The pastoral care and support for pupils and their families is highly effective, enabling all pupils to flourish. It is a testament to how the school is effective in living out its vision to “Love one another”, resulting in a positive impact on the whole school community"
"Collective worship is often inspirational. Whilst being distinctively Christian, it is inclusive of all, enabling those of different faiths and beliefs, and those with no religious affiliation to participate meaningfully. The link with the parish church can be seen in the daily life of the school, contributing to the vision and enhancing collective worship."
New SIAMS Inspection Schedule from 2018
Information for Parents.
As a Church of England school, in addition to monitoring by OfSTED, we are also inspected under a system called the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS). The SIAMS inspection takes place usually on a five yearly cycle. This is a national system which is organised, for our school, through the London Diocesan Board for Schools (LDBS). The SIAMS inspection is part of our ongoing process of school development and improvement.
From September 2018 there is a new SIAMS schedule in place with two significant changes. These are:
moving from making a judgement about the school based around four key questions to one key question, assessed under seven strands. These strands include the school’s Christian vision, collective worship and religious education. The key question is now, ‘How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish'
moving from four possible judgements (Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement, Inadequate) to three – Excellent, Good and Requires Improvement.
Once the inspection has taken place, a report is published and all parents/carers will be given access to a copy. It will also be uploaded onto our website.
