By Christina Bury, Director of Learning at Felsted Prep
We are delighted to announce that Felsted Prep has once again been awarded the Primary Quality Mark Award.
This national accreditation is awarded to schools which meet the Quality Mark Standard and celebrates progress and improvements made by a school in English and mathematics.
To achieve a Quality Mark, schools have to undergo an assessment, carried out by an external accredited assessor, against the 10 ‘Elements’ of the Quality Mark framework.
These cover key aspects of the school’s improvement agenda, including the identification and analysis of the school’s needs; strategic planning; target setting for improvement; intervention and support for pupils under-achieving or under-attaining; provision of quality in both teaching and in resources; staff development; and active engagement with families.
Effective monitoring and evaluation are also required - particularly to achieve renewal when
continuing development by the school and evidence of impact of actions must be demonstrated.
Congratulations to the staff team that led this initiative and obviously a huge thank you to the pupils for their excellent work in English and mathematics.
