SWA Awarded Inclusion Quality Mark

St Wilfrids Academy is proud to announce that it has been awarded the 'Inclusion Quality Mark', with a recommendation to become a Centre of Excellence. 

In her final report, the assessor commented that "The Academy is a welcoming, vibrant, inclusive community with happy staff and pupils. On touring the school, the majority of pupils presented as engaged and motivated to learn within lessons and those pupils who needed help to manage their emotional or behavioural needs were very well supported."

The assessor also noted that "The whole team demonstrate ambition and drive with a relentless insistence on every child who comes to the Academy, leaving with a clear pathway of next steps."

Leaders will now submit the action plan to complete the Centre of Excellence accreditation, following which, the Academy will join a network of other identified IQM centres who can provide support for schools nationally on embedding inclusive practice.
