All Church of England schools partake in the SIAMS inspection process under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005. During the inspection, the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults is investigated. 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. There is one core question to the inspection: How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?

Austrey is a good church school. It proclaims its distinctive Christian character through the
ways it promotes its Christian values of love, kindness, respect and tolerance. Children,
regardless of back ground, faith or ability, thrive. Parents appreciate the nurturing approaches in
place, which unite a school family to care and support each other.
