Brockington is a vibrant learning community fuelled by its Christian vision for all to experience fullness of life. This school enriches and transforms lives, particularly for those who are vulnerable, who encounter challenges or have additional learning and personal needs.
SIAMS Report 2023

Brockington College is proud to have been graded as ‘Excellent’ in its most recent SIAMS Inspection (June 23)!
We are particularly thrilled to have been judged as Excellent because our Church of England status and Christian vision  ‘learning to live life to the full’, drives the work we do. As stated in the report, ‘It is an excellent Church school because leaders make life-changing decisions that transform lives’.  It’s what we are all about!  
Having this recognised and endorsed by SIAMS has cemented the work we continue to do.  Although we are incredibly proud of all the findings within the report, we are delighted that the report acknowledges that ‘Living life to the full is a palpable vision which fuels leaders, staff and students to grow and learn together. Leaders at all levels harness the power of the life and teachings of Christ to make courageous decisions that improve students’ life chances’

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.  

SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the school’s Christian vision on students 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. Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles appropriate to, and reflective of, their particular context to be distinctively and effectively Christian in their character and ethos. SIAMS inspectors therefore do not look for a set template of what a Church school should be like, but rather take the particular context of the school into account and base their evaluation on the outcomes rather than the process.

The evaluation schedule has one inspection 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?

This is explored through seven strands:

  • Vision and Leadership
  • Wisdom, knowledge and skills
  • Character development: hope, aspiration and courageous advocacy
  • Community and living well together
  • Dignity and respect
  • The impact of collective worship
  • The effectiveness of religious education 

One overall grade is awarded, reflecting the contribution of these strands to the flourishing of students and adults in a church school. In addition, a standalone grade is awarded in all schools for collective worship and in voluntary aided (VA) schools and former VA schools for religious education (RE). This grade is based on teaching and learning alone.
