New SIAMS Framework

As most of you are aware, there is a new SIAMS framework which will be implemented starting in September 2018.   Those schools judged as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ will be inspected on a 5 year cycle, for those at grade 3 or 4, there is a 3 year cycle.   I am planning a series of introductory meetings to the new framework on the following dates.

Wednesday 21st March  - New SIAMS framework:  1.30 pm  -  4 pm Southborough CEP      School, Broom   Hill Park Road, TN4 0JY

Friday 23rd March - New SIAMS framework : 1.30 pm  -  4 pm Rochester Dioceses Offices, Boley Hill ME1 1SL

Monday 26th March - New SIAMS framework :  9.30 pm  -  12 noon Rochester  Diocesan Offices, Boley Hill ME1 1SL

Tuesday 27th March - New SIAMS framework:  1.30 pm  -  4 pm Rochester Diocesan Offices, Boley Hill ME1 1SL

The costs of this course is £25 plus VAT.   Please book your places by emailing : teresa.spearink@rochester.anglican.org

Please note these will be the four opportunities offered for this training and no further courses are planned at present.              

It is important that you send a representative to one of these meetings so that you are informed of the changes and of the new expectations that will be made of our schools.  As ever, this is designed to be supportive as we move forward on a journey of improvement and discovery.
