National Accolade Award to Etherley Primary
A national accolade for quality has been awarded to Etherley Lane Primary School for its work in improving the well being, resilience and self esteem of its pupils who are vulnerable to underachievement.
The Quality Mark Award recognises the impressive work being done by the 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 in the lowest achieving 20 per cent.
We have been working in partnership with Achievement for All and have seen a marked improvement in many aspects including working with parents and carers on children’s targets as part of the AfA framework.
We are thrilled to present Etherley Lane 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 Etherley Lane 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. Huge congratulations to teachers, parents, carers and children at Etherley Lane Primary School for all their hard work.”
