‘Together we love, learn and grow’


All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the Church of England Education Office’s framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005. SIAMS inspections look at the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults. They also look at how effective the schools individual Christians vision is established and promoted, enabling pupils and adults to flourish.
