Achieve Celebrate Succeed

Ofsted says: ‘Governors are inquisitive, challenging and responsive’– October 2017


Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)


The SIAMS process has been devised by the National Society to standardise inspection practices and judgements in all Church of England and Methodist Schools and to meet the requirements of Section 48 of the Education Act 2005


SIAMS/S48 judges the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a Church of England school and aims to help schools improve as church schools.


The main focus is in the outcomes, i.e. the impact of provision rather than the provision itself

There are 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


Kennington CE Academy had its last SIAMS Inspection in October 2017.  We have received an overall grading of good, with clear, small steps to be outstanding in the gutter and in the words of the inspector 'Behaviour, wellbeing and achievement have improved rapidly....'
