Monday 27th September 202115:30Admissions Guidance Forum

This online forum will give guidance on the recently published Department for Education's (DfE) new Schools Admissions Code which is applicable from 1st September 2021. 

In a Voluntary Aided School, Foundation School or Academy, the Governors /Director/Trustees are the legal admissions authority even though the arrangements may be in part administered by the Local Authority.

The Governors are responsible for the admissions policy which may differ from school to school.

The Local Authority is the legal admissions authority for the Voluntary Controlled Schools and so the LA determines the criteria and applies them.

This FREE session is available to all church school/academy leaders and members of their governing boards.  

The session will give practical guidance and tools to support schools with the required changes to their admissions policy.

Thursday 30th September 202109:30SIAMS Strands 1-5 (Sessions 1 of 2)

SIAMS inspections will be resumed from the Autumn Term 2021and those schools who will be due to be inspected in this academic year will be contacted by the Diocesan Education Team.

This SIAMS Schedule for inspections has been in effect from September 2018. Rather than it merely being a revision of the previous framework, this schedule has a new focus on Christian Vision and related practice, and is closely aligned with the Church of England’s vision for Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good. 

This year’s SIAMS courses will benefit from sharing the experiences of schools who have already undergone the new SIAMS inspection prior to COVID-19.

Starting with Strand 1: Vision and Leadership, these two sessions will help schools/academies to interpret the requirement to have a vision “grounded in a clear theology and rooted in a Christian narrative”.  Participants will see what this looks like in practice and how Strands 2-5 link to their vision set out in Strand 1.

Terminology will be unpicked to help schools/academies understand the requirements.

This is an essential course for all schools/academies. These are the first two sessions of the four sessions within this complete course:  SIAMS The Effectiveness of Religious Education  and SIAMS The Impact of Collective Worship are also required to complete the course.

Cost: £40.00 per delegate for Partnership Schools and £60 for non-Partnership Schools
