School Reports

Ofsted and SIAMS

What is SIAMS?

Every school which belongs to the Church of England is subject to a SIAMS inspection (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools), a requirement under section 48 of the Education Act 2005. A SIAMS inspection normally takes place every 5 years. Unlike Ofsted, the SIAMS inspection is focused only on the school’s vision and ethos. SIAMS inspectors explore the way in which the school works as a community: the provision the school makes because of its vision, and how effective this provision is in enabling the whole school community to flourish, pupils and staff alike.

Long Preston Endowed Voluntary Aided School, as a Church of England School, is subject to SIAMS inspections.  Click here to read our latest report.

What is Ofsted?

‘Ofsted’ is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. It is an independent and impartial government department which inspects services providing education and skills for learners of all ages. Ofsted also inspects and regulates services that care for children and young people.

Ofsted’s role is to make sure that organisations providing education, training and care services in England do so to a high standard for children and students.

In practical terms, for schools this is done mainly through regular inspection visits. After a visit by an Ofsted inspector a report is published which highlights the school’s current strengths and also draws attention to areas of school life which could be developed. The report is intended to help the school improve, and even the best schools can always move forwards and develop what they offer.
