Headteachers and Senior School Leaders - training and events

SIAMS for Schools

SIAMS is the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools. This is also known as a Section 48 inspection. This webinar is for headteachers, RE leaders, Collective Worship leads, governors and those who lead on the Christian character of a church school or trust. In this session we will explore the new 2023 SIAMS Framework.

We will cover what the new Framework looks like: the Inspection Structure; the importance of Christian vision; the six Inspection Questions; the judgments; self-evaluations; and the keeping of evidence.

Cost: £25
