Inclusion Quality Mark


In September 2015 our school undertook an assessment by the Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) team. 

Educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all pupils, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment and background. An inclusive school is one in which the teaching and learning, achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matters.  The IQM process provides a complete picture of what is happening in a school.

Following a rigorous assessment process, which included interviews with a parent, pupils, governor and members of staff as well as observations of teaching and learning activities we are delighted to have fully met the standards for this prestigious award.

Extracts from the report:

Since the appointment of the current, permanent head teacher, the school has followed a robust and effective action plan addressing all the issues noted in the Ofsted report November 2013.

The school is very welcoming, staff and students are used to visitors in the building. 

There is a very strong sense of belonging within the school environment, members of both teaching and support staff, who incidentally, are difficult to tell apart, relate well to all students.
