Our January 2024 inspection findings indicate that:
Our school is living up to its foundation as a Church school, and is enabling pupils and adults to flourish.
The inspection noted the following strengths:
- The profound sense of people of faith living out Sneinton’s deep Christian vision is entrenched in every aspect of school life.
- A rich awareness of being loved and nurtured as children of God empowers pupils to thrive.
- Strong support and systems within the Transform Trust structure greatly enhances the Christian character of the school.
- Inspirational and meaningful collective worship positively impacts the spiritual lives of the whole school community.
- A dynamic and creative religious education (RE) curriculum ensures pupils are enthusiastic learners and actively engaged. Teaching and learning are of very high quality.

SIAMS explores ways in which each school’s theologically rooted Christian vision drives its work and enables the school to live up to its foundation as a Church school.
It does so by seeking to seven Inspection Questions (IQs).
- IQ1: How does the school’s theologically rooted Christian vision enable pupils and adults to flourish?
- IQ2: How does the curriculum reflect the school’s theologically rooted Christian vision?
- IQ3: How is collective worship enabling pupils and adults to flourish spiritually?
- IQ4: How does the school’s theologically rooted Christian vision create a culture in which pupils and adults are treated well?
- IQ5: How does the school’s theologically rooted Christian vision create an active culture of justice and responsibility?
- IQ6: Is the religious education curriculum effective (with reference to the expectations set out in the Church of England’s Statement of Entitlement for Religious Education)?
- IQ7: What is the quality of religious education in voluntary aided and former voluntary aided schools, and in former voluntary controlled schools in which denominational religious education is taught?
SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school's Christian vision on pupils and adults. This involves looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish.
