An annual service agreement between our family of schools and the Guildford Diocesan Board of Education.
Since September 2018 church schools have been inspected under the new SIAMS Schedule. The SIAMS Inspection cycle is every five years, unless a school is graded satisfactory in which case the window is every three years.
Our approach is mid-point between inspections we contact you to arrange a time to visit and to discuss how the school is progressing and create an action plan. Please note this visit is not a ‘mock’ SIAMS.
4 terms (one year) before an inspection our Lead Schools Officer for Christian Distinctiveness invites schools to attend ‘train-the-trainer’ course to deliver ‘Whole Staff preparation for SIAMS’ package for use direct in school.
Post Inspection Support—in circumstances where schools are given a SIAMS inspection judgement of less than good our Lead Schools Officer for Christian Distinctiveness will visit the following term to create an action plan with the school or academy.
Further central training is provided for school staff and Governors at Church House, Guildford and repeats each term. This can be booked using this website Click here
