eD 55 A Fresh Look at Church School Inspection: Examining the 2023 SIAMS Framework


The 2023 SIAMS Framework marks a significant break with previous approaches to the inspection of church schools. It is radically different in its use of qualitative evidence to reach judgments rather than grades. Yet it is radically the same inasmuch as it does not reimagine what it means to be a church school.

This essential guide examines and explains the key changes, and explores how schools can demonstrate their theologically rooted Christian vision and practice.
