SIAMS Inspection

All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the National Society’s framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.

Westcott Church of England School was inspected and judged as GOOD when it was inspected in 2015. 
The full Westcott SIAMS Report 2015 is available to download.

The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.

Towards this objective, inspectors seek answers to 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?
