Awards and recognition

The Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Mark is the only national accreditation that supports and celebrates educational settings who provide meaningful experiences beyond the classroom across the whole curriculum, indoors and out, on and off-site. We achieved the Gold level in June 2021, demonstrating that the school is a leader in providing learning experiences outside the classroom and that these sessions are a genuine part of the everyday life of the school.
The Green Tree award is an educational initiative which encourages teachers to take the classroom outdoors and connect children with woods and wildlife. Schools gain points for completing activities, progressing through bronze, silver and gold levels until they reach the prestigious platinum title. We achieved the bronze award in February 2019, the silver award in January 2020, the gold award in March 2020 and are working hard towards achieving that prestigious platinum!
We have been awarded the Music Mark in recognition of a commitment to providing high quality music education for all children and young people. This gives us access to "imaginative and eclectic ideas approaches to music making in and beyond the classroom".
The Youth Sport Award is a reward and celebration scheme which helps young people to evidence their learning, progress and achievement in and through sports and physical activity. It also supports them to demonstrate the impact their involvement in sport has had on their personal development, including leadership skills. Targeted at upper Keystage 2, it aims to build positive lifestyle habits and behaviour and empowers young people to take ownership of developing their own skills. There are five different levels: Go, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
We achieved the bronze award in February 2019 and have retained the silver mark in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
We achieved the Gold School Games Mark award for our commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport in 2022/23.
From January 2020, we have a committed member of staff trained in the delivery of Kidsafe UK child protection/safeguarding programmes and we are a registered Kidsafe UK school.
The FairAware Award is achieved when a school shows commitment to learning about and understanding Fairtrade and Fairtrade products. It is awarded when a school reflects on their own understanding and commitment to Fairtrade by understanding what Fairtrade really means, learning about how it works and the benefits that choosing Fairtrade can have. We achieved this award in June 2020.
