EXCELLENT result for St Clement’s SIAMS inspection
We are delighted to share the results of St Clement’s CofE Primary School and Pre-school, Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS).
St Clement’s received an overall grade of Excellent and were also judged to be Excellent in The impact of collective worship and The effectiveness of religious education (RE).
All Church of England schools are visited every 5 years to evaluate the impact that the school's distinctive Christian vision has on pupils and how effective the school is in enabling all pupils to flourish.
This is explored through seven strands:
- Vision and Leadership
- Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills
- Character Development: Hope, Aspiration and Courageous Advocacy
- Community and Living Well Together
- Dignity and Respect
- The impact of collective worship
- The effectiveness of religious education
Even with a new SIAMS evaluation framework, which makes it more challenging for schools to achieve the highest grade, St Clement’s staff and leadership team worked hard to achieve excellence.
The report found:
“The school's vision is deeply rooted in Christian theology and understood by the whole community. It drives a highly relevant contemporary curriculum enabling all pupils to flourish.”
“The school's vision has excellent impact on staff and the wider community as well as the multi-academy trust to which it belongs.”
“Governance at trust and local level is exemplary in supporting and delivering the distinctive Christian vision. Thoughtful and innovative monitoring and evaluation has real impact in driving improvement and strategic direction.”
