SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools)

by Michael Ford last modified 03 Dec, 2018 10:29 AM
‘Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.’ - Colossians 3: 23-24

A new SIAMS Evaluation Schedule comes into effect from 1st September 2018.

 
The Church of England’s Vision for Education – ‘Deeply Christian; Serving The Common Good’ – states that, among the core purposes of church school education, are enabling the children, young people and communities which we serve to flourish through wisdom, hope, community and dignity and to discover life in all its fullness, as offered by Jesus.

Wisdom, hope, community and dignity are key in the new SIAMS Evaluation Schedule which provides church schools with a tool for effective self-evaluation and a process of external review which enables continued development.

The new SIAMS Evaluation Schedule focuses unashamedly on vision, with the hope that it will allow schools to place more of an emphasis on their purpose in education, ensuring that the school’s Christian vision impacts in ways which enable the whole school community to flourish.

A school whose current SIAMS inspection judgement is ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ will be inspected in the fifth academic year following that of its previous SIAMS inspection.

A school whose current SIAMS inspection judgement is ‘satisfactory’ or ‘inadequate’ will be inspected in the third academic year following that of its previous SIAMS inspection.

From September 2018, it is schools which are judged as ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ which will next be inspected in the fifth academic year following their inspection and schools judged as ‘requires improvement’ or ‘ineffective’ which will next be inspected in the third academic year following their inspection.

Salisbury Diocesan Board of Education has published a protocol which takes schools ‘step by step’ through the inspection process:
