Ofsted and Siams Reports


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.

This is evaluated through four core questions:

  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective is the Religious Education? (in VA schools and academies)
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?


Ofsted visited Bishop Loveday in October 2021 and this was our first Ofsted Inspection as an Academy. We are delighted to announce that we were rated as Good in all areas. You can read the full report here:
