The purpose of SIAMS inspection is:

  • to provide an evaluation of the impact of the school’s distinctively Christian vision for the governing body, multi-academy trust, the school, parent, diocese/district, Church of England Education Office, Methodist Church and wider public.
  • to meet the requirements of section 48 of the Education Act 2005 for schools which have a religious character.
  • to verify the outcome of the school’s self-evaluation.
  • to make a significant contribution to the improvement and sustainability of church schools.

SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact that the Christian vision of the church school has on pupils and adults. This will involve looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish. Schools will become effective by means of a variety of strategies, approaches and styles which reflect their local context or church tradition. Inspectors should carefully diagnose how each church school has a positive impact on pupils and adults.
