Inclusion Quality Mark Award


What is an IQM school?

The IQM school is likely to see itself as a caring school which:

  • Seeks maximum academic success for all students
  • Is focussed on the pursuit of outstanding teaching and learning
  • Is focussed in the interest of relationships for learning
  • Understands and cares for each individual
  • Is a loving, fun and humane school
  • Works with parents and students to raise standards and achieve excellence

IQM quotes

‘Children are valued as individuals within a caring atmosphere and there is a celebration of the cultures of all the school’s pupils in order that they feel understood.’

‘It is an outstanding example of a school committed to meet the needs of its children regardless of what that takes to achieve.’

Our next step is to apply for the IQM Flagship status!
