Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)
SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults. This involves looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish. Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles appropriate to, and reflective of, their particular context in order to be distinctively and effectively Christian in their character and ethos.
Our latest report states:
The distinctiveness and effectiveness of High Halden Primary School as a Church of England school are good
- The Christian values of equality, forgiveness, generosity, honesty and trust are firmly embedded in all aspects of school life. This impacts on positive relationships across the school community and on outcomes in learning.
- The bright and welcoming school environment that celebrates pupil’s individual successes and work as well as celebrating the school’s distinctiveness as a church school.
- Pupil involvement in worship through “Lighting the Candle” programme.
- Strong Christian leadership from the head teacher that fosters excellent links with all members of the school community and in particular the local church.
