SIAMS Report



As a Church of England School, we accept children of all faith and those of none. We actively celebrate the wonder of faith and the world around us, as part of this, we follow the National Curriculum guidance on teaching children RE. We learn about all faiths and encourage children to question religion and to find out why people believe what they believe.


In Modern Britain, it is important for all of our children to learn to have tolerance and compassion for others and for them to have an appreciation and respect for other people's beliefs and faith.


Throughout the year children learn about different religions and the special qualities associated with each.   


Please contact the school office if you would like to know more. 


SIAMS Inspection Report


Alongside OFSTED, there is a separate inspection process for church schools called 'Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools' (SIAMS). These inspections follow a timetable independent of Ofsted and happen every 5 years for schools rated good or outstanding.  The principal objective of the inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.


The core questions examined in a SIAMS inspection are:


  1. How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  2. What is the impact of collective worship on the school community
  3. How effective is the religious education?
  4. How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?


Our last SIAMS inspection was conducted in Nov 2015 and we received a rating of GOOD.
