Prince Albert have been successful once again in achieving their Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) Centre of Excellence status.
The IQM provides schools with a nationally recognised framework to help schools evaluate and measure how they are performing. Ofsted defines an educationally inclusive school as one in which the teaching and learning; achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matter. When schools are successful they receive external validation through the IQM of their Inclusive status.
Following a review of provision on 12th February, Joe McCann (Director of Inclusion Quality Mark-UK ltd) said "Prince Albert Primary School continues to move from strength to strength in terms of its inclusive practice and I am of the opinion that the school fully meets the standard required by the Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence review."
- In all of the classrooms visited, children were engaged in their learning activity and the atmosphere across the school was very calm.
- The nurture group provision is impressive and it is to the credit of leadership and the staff involved that it has been established so successfully
- Staff have worked hard to create an effective learning environment within the confines of a grand Victorian school building
- The new PSHCE curriculum is comprehensive, holistic and driven by strong values
- Staff have worked hard to make the building welcoming and reflective of their values
