SIAMS

As a church school we are inspected approximately every five years to assess and monitor the four main areas which together define our school as a Church of England school. The latest SIAMS inspection was carried out in November 2016 where the school was graded as satisfactory. The results of our inspection are summarised below:
 
  • The school’s Christian values are having a significant impact on children’s personal development and well-being but are not yet  sufficiently embedded to have an impact on their academic achievement.
  • Effective actions are being taken to enhance prayer and reflection within the daily life of the school and these are enhancing children’s spiritual development.
  • Through the work of the ethos committee, governors have a good overview of the school’s Christian character but this has not been used effectively to secure improved academic achievement.
The key areas for the school to improve were:
 
  • Review the school’s values and embed them by linking them explicitly to Biblical teaching, ensuring they promote children’s academic achievement as well as their personal and spiritual development.
  • Ensure that monitoring and evaluation of the school’s effectiveness as a church school are robust and that emerging issues form part of the strategic planning for improvement.
  • Increase opportunities for children to actively participate and engage in worship in order to further develop a greater understanding of this important aspect of the day
As a result of the inspection a comprehensive Statement of Action was put into place to address these findings which can be found in the Statement of Action area of the website.
