Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)
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."
Inspectors will grade the school on the following question:
How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?
This question is explored through the following seven strands:
Vision and Leadership; Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills; Character Development: Hope, Aspiration and Courageous Advocacy; Community and Living Well Together; Dignity and Respect; The Impact of Collective Worship; The Effectiveness of Religious Education.
