SIAMS Report (November 2022)

Our whole school community are rightly proud of our Excellent SIAMS inspection. It is a recognition of the incredible hard-working inclusive community that we are all a part of past, present and future.

We are incredibly proud to have been awarded 'Excellent' in all categories in our November 2022 SIAMS inspection report (available to download below).

The report stated that:

The lives of pupils at St Augustine’s are transformed because they are nurtured and cherished by skilled, caring and insightful adults in the school. School leaders and staff, motivated by the school's vision, go to exceptional lengths to ensure that pupils, particularly the most vulnerable have hopeful futures.

The visionary work-related curriculum, driven by the school’s Christian vision, is instrumental in sowing aspiration and self-belief in pupils in this inner-city school, which serves a very deprived area. Pupils achieve far beyond their expectations.

Pupils respond powerfully to the school’s Christian vision by striving to be ‘the best we can be’. In addition to strong academic performance, this results in a vibrant student voice, which has a significant impact on the life of the school.

Religious Education (RE) is a flagship department in the school. Lessons are expertly led, participative and provide a safe space for discussing important and controversial issues. As a result students rightly develop a love of the subject and achieve highly.

The collective worship programme has been carefully crafted to reflect the school’s Christian vision and values. It is absolutely central to pupils’ experience of school and is a wonderful unifying factor for the many different religions and ethnic groups in the school.

The report focuses on one overreaching 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?

The outcomes of the report are:

  • The impact of collective worship – Excellent
  • The effectiveness of religious education (RE) - Excellent
  • Overall grade - Excellent

As in all inspection reports, there are areas for development which are usually focused on ways in which the school can improve. In this case the inspector has asked the school to share its expertise: ‘To seek further opportunities to spread the excellent practice in collective worship and trauma informed behaviour management to other schools, so that they can benefit from the insights at St Augustine’s.’
