Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)
As a Church of England School we regularly have a Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS). Our last two inspections were in 2013 and 008 and on both occasions the school was awarded an outstanding grade. The inspection covers:
- 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?

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development (SMSC)
Spiritual development relates to that aspect of inner life through which pupils acquire insights into their personal experience which are of enduring worth.
Moral development is about the building, by pupils, of a framework of moral values which regulates their personal behaviour. It is also about the development of pupils’ understanding of society’s shared and agreed values.
Social development is about young people working effectively with each other and participating successfully in the community as a whole. It is about the development of the skills and personal qualities necessary for living and working together. It is about functioning effectively in a multi-racial, multi-cultural society.
Cultural development is about pupils’ understanding their own culture and other cultures in their town, region and in the country as a whole. It is about understanding cultures represented in Europe and elsewhere in the world.
