Holy Trinity is a voluntary aided Church of England primary school in the heart of the Sunningdale community. We have a close relationship with the nearby Holy Trinity Church and members of the village community. Our school falls under the Oxford Diocese and we work with them to ensure our school meets the needs of all learners under the Christian faith and ethos of the school.
SIAMS – Church Inspection of Schools
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.
‘Believe. Achieve. Inspire.'
“Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level. The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.”
