The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) inspects the impact of collective worship on the whole school community - not just the pupils.
This will include
- the extent to which learners and adults engage with collective worship, its relevance and the way it makes a difference to the lives of members of the whole school community
- the extent to which collective worship is distinctively Christian, setting out the values of the school in their Christian context
- how well collective worship develops personal spirituality within the school community through a range of experiences, including a focus on prayer
- how well collective worship enables participants to develop an understanding of Jesus Christ and a Christian understanding of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit
- how effectively the school community is involved in the planning, leadership and evaluation of collective worship.
