National Accolade Awarded to Willington Primary School

We are all delighted to receive an award for our work in improving the well-being, resilience and self-esteem of our pupils who are vulnerable to underachievement.

The Quality Mark Award recognises the impressive work being done by our school to improve progress in reading, writing and maths for all pupils, particularly those with  Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities.

The award has been developed by leading education  charity ‘Achievement for All (AfA)’, which offers support  programmes to schools and settings to help them improve outcomes for the lowest achieving 20 per cent.

The ‘Achievement for All’ programme involves the school working closely with parents, carers and the individual child to secure the best outcome and attainment for each pupil through personalised and specific targets. The unique programme was delivered directly to school via a highly skilled and trained team of expert coaches and  specialist online support .

Schools are assessed for the Quality Mark Award within the second year of the Schools Programme. The award focuses on a variety of categories such as strategic  planning, quality of teaching and learning, effective use of interventions, pupil progress and community relationships.

Garath Jackson, Regional Director at Achievement for All, said:

“We are thrilled to present Willington Primary School with this much deserved award. They have shown a high quality of leadership and teamwork, and most importantly, the target groups have made more than expected progress and are closing the gap with their peers. Our programmes are designed to be a whole school improvement tool and Willington Primary School has shown a continued  commitment and success in improving outcomes for their children.

Achievement for All believes that every child can  progress, and through our programmes we hope to enable every child to be the best that they can be regardless of background, challenge, or need.

A huge AFAcongratulations to teachers, parents, carers and children at Willington Primary School for all their hard work.”
