Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)


On Thursday 16th June, a Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) took place at Priory.

This is where an inspector, who is a representative of the Church of England education office, comes to answer the question: how effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?

The inspector, Mr Coates, spoke with pupils, parents, Reverend Shaun and school staff and observed a range of learning activities and worship to evaluate our effectiveness.

His key findings were that we are a good school and the impact of collective worship is good. He noted, as did Ofsted in 2019, that Priory is a happy school, where relationships are strong, ensuring that pupils and adults can flourish.

We have some development points, but we’re already planning how we can address them, with the support of Lichfield diocese, during the next academic year.

Thank you to everyone for being a part of #TeamPriory and therefore playing a part in this judgement. A special thank you to the parents and parent governors who came into school and spoke with Mr Coates, during the inspection.
