Collective Worship & SIAMS

Collective worship – Roots and Fruits


We use Roots and Fruits for our collective worship.


Roots and Fruits provides creative collective worship for primary schools based in Christian values themes over a period of two years. Rooted in Bible teaching, twelve Christian values represent the fruit that grows as the teaching is lived out in everyday life.


Our value for Summer 1 value is Friendship.

Friendship is… 

Finding things to do together 

Relying on each other 

Impossible on your own 

Enjoying being together 

Never selfish 

Depending on someone else 

Sharing hopes and dreams 

Happiness and laughter 

Including others 


Prayer for a special friend 


Dear Lord Jesus, 

You have shown us through the Bible that you want to be woven 

into our lives as our friend. 

Thank you that we can talk to you at any time because 

you are even closer to us than the people in our own family.

What is SIAMS and what do they do?


The National Society's Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) framework is used in all Section 48 inspections of Church of England schools and in the denominational inspection of academies. 


The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.

Towards this objective, inspectors seek answers to four key questions.

  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective is the Religious Education? (in VA schools and academies)
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?
