Hadrian Primary School is one of the few mainstream primary schools in the North of England to have the Inclusion Quality Mark and following successful reassessment, the school has again been successful in being recognised for the inclusive work they do. The school is also being put forward to become an ‘IQM Centre of Excellence’, to support and work alongside other schools.
Educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all pupils, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment or background.
The assessment involved looking at all aspects of the way the school provides opportunities for and supports children to access the curriculum, as well as the work they do with parents and carers.
“Hadrian Primary School is an excellent example of inclusive practice in action. There is a clear ethos of high aspiration, support and challenge, which when combined with the high priority given towards the wellbeing, social, physical and emotional needs of pupils, sets the tone for the inclusive framework.”
Laura Smith, Inclusion Mark Assessor
“For the third time we have been awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark. Pupils, parents, staff, governors and the local community have yet again demonstrated their whole-hearted commitment to inclusion. I am pleased to say that our outstanding report is a reflection of our hard work and efforts. We will continue to support inclusive practice and increase life chances for all pupils who may experience barriers to learning.”
