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.

 

This half-term’s value is TRUST.

 

The LORD is my shepherd

The Bible tells us to trust God with all our heart and he will direct our path.

 

 

 

The story of David and Goliath (Samuel 17 v1-50) tells us that David was able to feel brave when he faced the giant Goliath because he trusted in God to protect him.

 

 

 

David wrote about the love and kindness of God.

 

What makes you afraid and what brings you comfort?

Who do you turn to during times of need?

 

 

 

“Trust Me” Prayer

 

Trust in God - He has a plan

Trusting God

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?
