Suspension of SIAMS until 31 January 2022

Dr Margaret James, National Director of SIAMS has announced SIAMS inspections will be temporarily paused until Monday 31 January 2022.


‘In view of the additional pressures with which school leaders and staff are currently dealing as a result of the rapid spread of the Omicron variant of Covid, no SIAMS inspections will take place until Monday 31 January at the earliest. The National Director of SIAMS will review the situation over the coming weeks and will update diocesan education teams, as well as the SIAMS website, with the date of the resumption of normal inspection activity. Once inspections resume, schools will receive one week’s notice of the date of their inspection as per the notification policy.’
