As a Church of England school, Haddenham St Mary's is subject to regular inspections according to the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005. This is in addition to the OFSTED evaluation.
The SIAMS inspection provides a process for evaluating the extent to which church schools are 'distinctively and recognisably Christian institutions'.
The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school, and how well the distinctive Christian character and ethos of the school ensure the development and achievement of the whole child or young person.
In its latest SIAMS evaluation,
the school received OUTSTANDING ratings in the following areas:
- The Christian ethos of the school makes an outstanding impact for good on the academic, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils.
- The school's distinctive Christian values are made explicit and permeate all areas of daily school life with a consequent highly beneficial effect on relationships and behaviour.
- The committed and inspirational leadership of the school has delivered a programme of development and expansion that has transformed the interior learning environment of the school for good.
- The exterior learning environment, the spiritual garden, 'Farm to fork' food programme and Eco Classroom, are exemplary and ensure excellent spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) provision for pupils.
