(The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools)
As Church of England federated schools, we are subject to the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS). This evaluates the 'distinctiveness and effectiveness' of the school as a Church school, and how well the distinctive Christian character and ethos of the school ensure the development and achievement of the whole child or young person.
We were last inspected in April 2016 and both schools were judged to be 'Good'.
The inspections follow a timetable independent of Ofsted.
The core questions in the current self-evaluation document are:
- 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?
- How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?
