SIAMs and Worship


We are delighted to attach Fressingfield Primary School’s SIAMS report following our recent Anglican and Methodist Schools inspection. SIAMS sets a high bar for each school to live up to its foundation as a Church school through its theologically rooted Christian vision. During the inspection, a number of areas were looked at including; the school’s vision, curriculum, spirituality, collective worship, links with families and the community, Religious Education and pupil voice. 

There are many wonderful, positive comments throughout the report, but we are particularly pleased with the statement, ‘Pupil voice is powerful, recognising injustice and advocating on a range of issues’. Our inspector told us that the opportunities for children to be courageous advocates is amongst the best she had seen under the current inspection framework. Similar comments were made regarding the RE books which were also highly praised.

We are also pleased with the comments made about our inclusive curriculum: the inspector identified that ‘the rich provision for learning, coupled with support for emotional and social needs, is a strength,’ and that ‘learning is inclusive. Committed teachers and support staff meet the needs of vulnerable pupils, ensuring all are cherished.’

Throughout the inspection, the children were a credit to the school and their families. 

Obviously, the children would not have the chance to experience so many life-enhancing opportunities without the commitment of the staff and we would like to thank them all for making Fressingfield Primary such an amazing school.
