GOOSTREY School has been successfully re-assessed for the Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM), and has received a glowing assessment in the process.
In a detailed report, the IQM assessor said that Goostrey School demonstrates a very inclusive ethos which is embedded throughout the school community, and has a caring nurturing atmosphere while sustaining a drive towards every child achieving their academic potential.
The IQM, which is a standard for assessing schools against a nationally-recognised framework on inclusion, is something schools must apply for every three years. Goostrey first achieved the standard in 2006.
The report also singles out the head teacher Lyndsey Atkins for praise, saying she is highly regarded throughout the school community and is fully committed to furthering a fully-accountable nurturing educational experience for all pupils.
Lyndsey Atkins said: “At Goostrey School we set ourselves some very high standards, so it is always very re-assuring when an independent assessor reports that our expectations and aspirations are high for all pupils and behaviour is excellent.
“This has only been achieved by a great team effort, and I would like to thank all staff, governors, parents and pupils for making Goostrey School a very special place.”
