The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS/Section 48) follows a schedule which is independent of Ofsted.

The principal objective of the inspection is to address the 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?’

To do this the inspection looks at seven strands:

  1. Vision and Leadership
  2. Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills
  3. Character Development: Hope, Aspiration and Courageous Advocacy
  4. Community and Living Well Together
  5. Dignity and Respect
  6. The impact of collective worship
  7. The effectiveness of religious education
