As a Church of England school within The Redstart Learning Partnership, Buckland St March C of E Primary is a small village primary school. Due to the size of the school there are insufficient volunteers to establish their own separate Ethos Committee. Therefore, the work of the Ethos Committee will be included in remit of the Teaching and Learning Committee (TLC).
The Ethos Committee as part of the TLC will focus on the support and development of the Christian foundation and ethos of the school. It will be intrinsic to the development of the Church school status and progress against the SIAMs framework.
The SSH TLC will aim to provide an environment in which Christian Distinctiveness is promoted and allowed to flourish and it is of the utmost importance to our work to seek to answer the SIAMs overarching question:
How effective is the school's distinctive vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?
Reporting and monitoring will therefore lead on from this question and will be based on the seven strands of the SIAMS framework:
- Vision and Leadership
- Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills
- Character Development: Hope, Aspiration and Courageous Advocacy
- Community and Living Well Together
- Dignity and Respect
- The Impact of Collective Worship
- The Effectiveness of Religious Education
The key documents that will be reviewed and monitored will be the SIAMS Self Evaluation Form and action plan.
