SIAMS Inspection

Church of England schools have a denominational inspection called SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools)

As well as being inspected by Ofsted, denominational schools have a further inspection under section 48 of the Education Act 2005.  In Church of England/Church in Wales schools this is referred to as Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS).

For further information on SIAMS inspection, click here.

Governing bodies should have a contract with their SIAMS inspector. You can download one by clicking here.

Liverpool Diocese now oversees the administration of SIAMS inspections for Chester, Manchester and Liverpool dioceses. They have produced an inspection handbook for schools which can be accessed here
