A REDDITCH school has received a national accolade for its work in improving the well-being, resilience and self-esteem of its pupils.
St. George’s CE First School have been awarded the Quality Mark Award which recognises work being done by the school to improve progress in reading, writing and maths for all pupils, particularly those with Special Educational Needs and disabilities.
The school have been working with the Achievement for All programme since 2014 and have seen a marked improvement especially when working with parents and carers on children’s targets as part of the framework.
Tasnim Koser, Deputy and AfA School Champion at St. George’s, said:“The programme has really strengthened our capacity to improve outcomes for the pupils in our Church of England school we are delighted that this award recognises the hard word and commitment of all staff.”
Laura Bromberg, Regional Director at Achievement for All, said:“We are thrilled to present St. George’s CE First School with this much deserved award. They have shown a high quality of leadership and teamwork, which has led to better outcomes for all pupils, in particular the most vulnerable.
“We were particularly impressed by the school’s workshops and sessions which allow parents to jointly work with their children and support them more effectively at home.
“We were delighted to hear about the impact on one child in particular, his parents stating that he ‘feels more confident and his self-esteem is back.’
“Achievement for All believes that every child can progress, and we hope to enable every child to be the best that they can be regardless of background, challenge or need. Huge congratulations to teachers, parents, carers and children at St. George’s for all their hard work.”
