SIAMS Inspection (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools)

We last received a SIAMS Inspection in March 2024.

Some key points from the report are:

  • The lived and breathed Christian vision guides the school’s actions and decision making at all levels. As a result, pupils and adults are empowered to reach their God given potential.
  • Underpinned by the vision, pupils, including those with additional needs, embrace the many enrichment opportunities offered through the curriculum.
  • Vibrant, inclusive and inspiring collective worship is a natural expression of the school’s Christian vision.
  • Strong relationships and loving pastoral care create a nurturing environment that enhances the wellbeing of pupils and adults.
  • Shaped by the vision, the well-planned religious education (RE) curriculum successfully builds on prior learning. Consequently, pupils demonstrate a rich knowledge and understanding of world religions and worldviews.
