Understanding the reports
SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools)
Church of England Schools are inspected through the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) framework. Both schools were judged to be 'good' during their most recent inspection.
‘A strong focus on the needs of each individual child within an inclusive Christian community, fosters self-belief and results in outstanding achievement.’
‘Pupils flourish as confident, independent and successful learners in a warm and caring environment, underpinned by Christian values.’
