Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools

(SIAMS)

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. The framework sets out the expectations for the conduct of the Statutory Inspection of Anglican, Methodist and ecumenical Schools under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005 and provides a process for evaluating the extent to which church schools are "distinctively and recognisably Christian institutions".

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