Early Years Quality Mark
March 2015- Our school has been awarded the Early Years Quality Mark. We are very proud of our EYFS provision and are so fortunate to have such dedicated staff and who are so committed to ensuring the very best start for our children.
Achieving a Quality Mark offers valuable public recognition for the day-to-day work of all practitioners in the setting. It celebrates the work of everyone involved with the setting in its provision for the young children in its care and the standards they achieve. It represents an external validation and acknowledgement of good provision, practice, progress and performance and is an award recognised by Ofsted.
November 2014-We are very pleased that our work during the spring and autumn terms towards becomming a Rights Respecting School has been recognised as showing commitment to embedding the rights in our school, We have now been awarded the first level of the award and are able to display the commitment log on all our work. Well done and thanak you to the Mini-Vinnies and Mrs Robson for leading this important work in our school.
Well done to Mrs White and Mrs Guy who have led children and parents to achieve the RHS level 2 award this summer 2014.
Healthy Schools Award
Many schools have this award; it demonstrates the work which we do in four areas of health: physical activity, emotional health, healthy eating and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education). The award was renewed spring 2014.
This award recognises the excellent provision we have to support the teaching of the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics. Winning the award is a tribute to the brilliant team of teachers and teaching assistants at St Clare’s. The award was received for the first time in autumn 2013.
The Sainsbury’s School Games Kitemark
The Sainsbury’s School Games Kitemark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Kitemark. The award was received for the first time in autumn 2013. We have been reawarded silver in recognition for our work in school sport this year. We will be looking to make more community links and increase our partnership with community sports clubs to go for gold next year! We currently work in partnership with Middlesbrough Dance Consortium, Middlesbrough Rugby Club, Tees Valley Titans Wheelchair Basketball and MFC in the Community.
Artsmark is Arts Council England’s flagship programme to enable schools and other organisations to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their arts and cultural provision. It is delivered by Trinity College London and 10 regional Bridge organisations drive participation.
Artsmark is nationally recognised as demonstrating excellence in arts and cultural provision. Holding Artsmark status demonstrates that your school or setting values the arts and culture.It raises the public profile of a school or setting in the eyes of prospective students, their families and across the wider community. Artsmark contributes to the cultural aspect of Ofsted’s requirement that a school promotes students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The award was received for the first time in autumn 2013.
The Inclusion Quality Mark
The Inclusion Quality Mark is designed as a self auditing tool. Schools use the self-evaluation report to identify activities against the element headings. This can take time and will undoubtedly involve a wide range of staff, ensuring that this document is a central descriptor of the holistic approaches within the school that have an impact on Inclusion practices.
The assessment aims to validate the school’s judgements and to allow an experienced assessor to interrogate the school information. Where appropriate, the assessor will also offer advice and suggestions for further school development. They bring into the school significant experience, both as educators and assessors. The award was received for the first time in autumn 2013.
Eco-Schools Silver Award
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.
