SIAMS inspections

All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the Church of England Education Office's framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.  The SIAMS Evaluation Schedule 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.

SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school's Christian vision on pupils and adults. This involves looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish. More detail can be found on the SIAMS website at https://www.churchofengland.org/more/education-and-schools/church-schools-and-academies/siams-school-inspections

In May 2015, Wirksworth Church of England Infant School was judged OUTSTANDING

Community links

Our Federation enjoys close links with our local community and churches.

St Mary's Church, Wirksworth, is often a focus for collective worship and celebrations. St Mary's Team Ministry, led by Team Rector Canon David Truby, provides regular support to our schools.
