Mr Gulzar awarded OBE in Queen’s Birthday Honours List

We are delighted to announce that Mr Gulzar, our CEO has been awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in this year’s Queen’s Birthday honours list. Mr Gulzar is one of 48 people to be honoured this year for Services to Education.

On receiving the award Mr Gulzar said “I was surprised and humbled to be recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for Services to Education. Ever since I was a student teacher, I have done my very best to make a positive difference to children’s lives and for them to benefit from their education in the way that I have”. He added “This honour isn’t just for me and my family. It is for my colleagues, for the communities we serve and the children who are entrusted to us. I have had the privilege of working with amazing families and the most talented and dedicated people in education over the past 20 years without whom this recognition would be impossible”.

Sue Knottenbelt, Chair of Trustees at Prince Albert Community Trust said "The award of an OBE to Sajid Gulzar represents a huge personal achievement and well-deserved recognition for his outstanding leadership, dedication and effective work in raising standards and improving life chances in our city.  This recognition is great for Sajid personally and also great for the staff and pupils of our PACT schools and the communities we serve and for Birmingham."

I am sure that you will join all of us at the Prince Albert Community Trust in congratulating Mr Gulzar on his extraordinary achievement.

Prince Albert gain Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence status for a third time.

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."

Report highlights

  • 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
