The ‘Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools’ follow a timetable which is independent of Ofsted and based on a five-year cycle. The principal objective of the inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school. To do this the inspection looks at four key questions:

  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?

Please note that from September 2018 there will be a new SIAMS Schedule.
Please note that any information regarding the new schedule is provisional and subject to change.
