As a Church of England School we are part of The Diocesan Board of Education, The DBE is a statutory body with particular functions and responsibilities for church schools, RE and Collective Worship and education in the diocese more widely.

All church schools are subject to the SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) process.  SIAMS considers the distinctiveness, effectiveness and sustainability of the Christian ethos of church schools through the impact of the school’s chosen Christian vision.

In June 2015 Cavendish was awarded "Outstanding" in our SIAMS inspection.  "The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Cavendish as a Church of England school are outstanding". 

 Schools are inspected no less than 3 to 5 years after their last inspection.
