Collective Worship and SIAMs

Collective worship – Roots and Fruits

Each term we use 'Roots and Fruits' for our collective worship.


Roots and Fruits provides creative collective worship for primary schools based in Christian values themes over a period of two years. Rooted in Bible teaching, twelve Christian values represent the fruit that grows as the teaching is lived out in everyday life.


The value for the Spring Term 2 is Justice.

Justice is…. 

Judging what is right 

Understanding what is fair 

Standing up for those who need help 

Trying to listen to both sides 

Informed and wise decisions 

Caring enough to take action 

Equal opportunities for all



Prayer for justice and love 


Father God, 

your Son Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. 

In his resurrection he restores life and peace in all creation. 

In a world of sadness and tears, show us your joy. 

In a world of hatred, show us your love. 

In a world of despair, give us hope. 

In a world of disbelief, give us faith. 

Give us power in your world to make a difference 

and stand up for justice. 


What is SIAMS and what do they do?


The National Society's Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) framework is used in all Section 48 inspections of Church of England schools and in the denominational inspection of academies. Bisham received a 'Good' judgement in our July 2017 inspection, you can read a copy of the full report below.


The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.

Towards this objective, inspectors seek answers to four key 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?
