Awards We Are Working Towards 2021-2022

History Logo.png

The Historical Association Quality Mark is all about recognition of the excellent history provision that schools offer young people. The History Quality Mark is concerned with ensuring that there is effective learning through appropriate and motivating teaching that engages pupils consistently throughout the school, and ensuring that the school enriches teaching and learning in history through other subjects and resources/programmes beyond history lessons.


The Quality Mark in Early Years is an external recognition of the impact of the work of leaders and practitioners in improving the quality of provision for young children and the standards they achieve. This helps our school continue to think about how to improve the quality of service offered to children and their families and provides a holistic evidence base for continuous improvement through the multi-dimensional aspect of Quality Mark.
