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. As a result of the 2011 Education Act and subsequent changes to the Ofsted inspection framework, we have produced new guidance on making arrangements for a SIAMS inspection.

The framework provides a process for evaluating the extent to which church schools are “distinctively and recognisably Christian institutions”.
