SIAMs Inspection

Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)

The SIAMS process has been devised by the National Society to standardise inspection practices and judgements in all Church of England and Methodist Schools and to meet the requirements of Section 48 of the Education Act 2005

SIAMS/S48 judges the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a Church of England school and aims to help schools improve as church schools

The main focus is in the outcomes, i.e. the impact of provision rather than the provision itself

There are four key questions:

  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective is the religious education?
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school

Reculver Church of England Primary School had its last SIAMS Inspection in 2010, led by Mrs. Tricia Martin. Its next inspection will be on Wednesday 21st January 2015, and will be led by Mr. John Ross.

The Inspection Report will be posted on this page when it is published.
