Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)

Each Church school and academy is required to have a Section 48 Inspection for a judgement on its distinctiveness and effectiveness as a Church of England school. 

The purpose of the SIAMS inspection is to verify the school’s evaluation of its performance in relation to the ways in which each school’s theologically rooted Christian vision drives its work and enables the school to live up to its foundation as a Church school.

SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults. This involves looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish.

We are pleased to share that our recent SIAMS inspection found that Holy Trinity Church of England Primary Academy is living up to its foundation as a church school.

“Holy Trinity Primary Academy welcomes and celebrates pupils and families from a rich range of cultures and religions.”

“The well-chosen Christian values are at the heart of this school and are lived out by all.”

“Collective worship is a treasured part of the school day at Holy Trinity.”

“The vision of hope for a future impacts strongly on the ethos of this richly diverse school. Excellent relationships are cultivated through a culture of service that brings hope. This is seen in the exemplary support that pupils and families are given as they are welcomed from different countries.

“Supported by supportive relationships, pupils flourish in their learning.”

“Pupils behave with kindness towards each other and to all who visit the school.”

“RE makes a significant difference in the lives of pupils in this school.”

“The vision of seeking hope and a future make a significant impact on the lives of adults and pupils. There is profound appreciation, respect, and care for each other. This creates an inclusive and dignifying culture that welcomes and celebrates the unique, God-given gifts of each child and adult in this school community.”
