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 Spring 1 value is Forgiveness.

Forgiveness is… 

Forgetting the hurts 

Offering a new beginning 

Restoring a friendship 

Given and received 

Identifying responsibility 

Valuing the truth 

Ending an argument 

Not holding a grudge 

Encouraging honesty 

Saying sorry 

Starting again 

A forgiveness prayer 

 

Lord Jesus 

Help us to be ready to show forgiveness to others, 

As you are ready to show forgiveness to us. 

Amen

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?
