New SIAMS Framework

Jan 19, 2018

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  -  1.30 -4 pm Southborough CEP School, Broom Hill Park Road, TN4 0JY
Friday 23rd March              1.30 pm  -  4 pm Rochester Diocesan Offices, Boley Hill ME1 1SL 
Monday 26th March            9.30 pm  -  12 noon Rochester Diocesan Offices, Boley Hill ME1 1SL 
Tuesday 27th March          1.30 pm  -  4 pm Rochester Diocesan Offices, Boley Hill ME1 1SL 
 
The cost 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.
