Self-evaluation as a church school

The process of ongoing self-evaluation enables schools to reflect meaningfully on the impact of their vision, policy and practice. Schools are free to self-evaluate – showing clear links between vision, provision and evidence of impact – in whichever way they choose.

Self-evaluation templates created by the National SIAMS team are available should your school wish to make use of them as they are, or to help shape your school’s own document.

Schools are also encouraged to write one short, summary self-evaluation which is aligned with the SIAMS criteria. In doing this, your school may like to use the language of the Evaluation Schedule to help you to accurately demonstrate your evidence-based self-evaluation.

The self-evaluation templates and further details on self-evaluation (in the ‘SIAMS Information for Schools’ document) can be downloaded from the links below.

Ryan Parker, the RE and Christian Ethos Adviser, will be happy to receive any queries relating to self-evaluation. You can contact Ryan on
