Crosshall Infant School Academy Trust has been awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark’s (IQM) Inclusive School and Centre of Excellence award.

The IQM award recognises the ongoing commitment by schools to provide the best education for all children, irrespective of differences.

A summary of the IQM inspector’s conclusions stated that all areas of the school are “immaculate and well maintained” and the school provided good facilities, including an IT suite. The school also provides a good selection of pupil’s work, including a “uniquely designed sensory wall”.

The inspector said: “I was particularly impressed with the school’s attitude to innovation and growth in providing the very best learning opportunities for all children whatever their needs. A variety of resources and collaborative partnerships have been provided.”

Karen Hurrell, the school’s inclusion leader and special educational needs co-ordinator, added: “We are delighted to be awarded the IQM award. This award recognises the hard work of everyone at Crosshall Infant School Academy Trust.
