IQM Inclusive School Award
Every young person matters and making each one of them the best they can be is what inclusion is all about. Inclusion Quality Mark has been assessing and recognising schools for their hard work on making inclusion matter since 2004.
An inclusive school gives all pupils regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, achievements or background the equal opportunities to succeed. In return Inclusion Quality Mark provides schools with a nationally recognised framework to recognise the efforts they are making to be inclusive.
Surrey Anti-Bullying Charter Mark
The Gold Surrey Anti-Bullying Charter Mark award is a celebration of a whole school approach to anti-bullying work. This accreditation has been awarded by the Charter Mark following their inspection. While as a school, we had initially expected the 'Silver' award, the inspectors were so impressed by the evidence provided, that St. Cuthbert's Catholic Primary School has been awarded the 'Gold' accreditation.
The Charter Mark inspectors look into how effectively incidents of bullying and peer conflict are responded to and managed. They look for evidence of how the School promotes the development of a culture and policy that sits comfortably and supportively within the safeguarding ethos of a school:
- ensuring that schools provide a safe and happy place to learn, for children;
- allowing them to achieve school improvement;
- raise achievement and attendance;
- promote equality and diversity;
- develop resilience;
- ensure the safety and well-being of the pupils and the school community.
Not only did the inspectors look at written evidence, they also interviewed some of our Peer Mediators who have been working very hard in presenting the assemblies and the work they do on the playground.
The peer mediators work diligently with our Behaviour Lead, in raising their profile and responsibilities with regards to conflict resolution and their ideas for improving the way that incidents are dealt with. We have produced restorative question cards, which every member of staff carries on their lanyard, which has seen a cohesive approach to questioning children in the event of an incident.
