Ark Charter Academy is a Church of England School. Church schools are recognised for their distinctive Christian ethos and the impact this has on standards and all round education. Every five years Church of England schools will have a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican an Methodist Schools) inspection. The SIAMS inspection focuses on 'How effective is the school's distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership, at all levels, enabling pupils and adults to flourish', . Inspectors will record whether or not the school meets the relevant statutory requirements, for collective worship and RE as well as a strong Christian ethos. As with Ofsted the main judgments will be rated on the scale as either Excellent, Good, Requires Improvement or Ineffective.
In June 2017 Ark Charter had a SIAMS inspection. The inspection was carried out by Portsmouth CofE diocese. The diocese awarded Ark Charter with a grading of Good. The diocese gave targets for the school to further improve. You can read the SIAMS report by clicking on the link.
