Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools (SIAMS) SIAMS Handbook, September 2019
This handbook explains the recommended practice for carrying out the inspection. The rules for
inspection are set out and the sources of evidence to be used are identified. Schools will become
effective by means of a variety of strategies, approaches, and styles, which reflect their local
context or church tradition. The importance of a flexible approach to inspection, considering the
school’s own self-evaluation, is paramount.
