Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools (SIAMS)

Responsible, Caring & Secure

What is the purpose of SIAMS inspections?

A SIAMS inspection focusses on the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults within the school community. Inspectors will consider the school’s vision, its provision and how effective that provision is. It is recognised that schools will have a range of approaches to reflect their unique contexts and therefore SIAMS inspectors will appreciate that ‘one size’ does not fit all schools. Instead, they will take the school’s context into consideration and look at outcomes rather than processes.
