Promoting Christian distinctiveness through excellent education in the Diocese of Rochester

SIAMS Reports 2016 onwards

Church schools make up a highly diverse ‘family’ of institutions across nursery, primary and secondary phases. The SIAMS Framework seeks to evaluate the impact that these church schools have on all their learners.  The evaluation of the overall effectiveness of the school and of the impact of its Christian character on learners embraces both their academic and personal development.

The principal objective of the inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.  A  church  school’s  self-evaluation,  verified  by  inspection,  seeks  to  judge  how  well  the  school’s distinctive Christian character and values ensure the development and achievement of the whole child or young person.

Towards this objective, inspectors seek answers to four core questions.

1.  How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the  needs of all learners?

2.  What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?

3.  How effective is the religious education?

4.  How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?
