Inclusion Quality Mark Flagship School
At the end of December we were assessed once again against the Inclusion Quality Mark Standards and were delighted to be re-accredited as a Flagship School. This is an excellent achievement and a recognition of our commitment to being an inclusive school and one in which the teaching and learning; achievements, attitudes and well-being of every child matters.
The report stated that:
“The atmosphere in the school during the IQM visit was an absolute joy to experience. The school is a welcoming and an inclusive place to learn. There is a true sense of drive, determination and ambition amongst the leaders which ensures all staff and learners are engaged and focussed encouraging a strong sense of belief and instilling trust and collaboration throughout the school amongst its community. Structures and processes ensure positive outcomes for all pupils in terms of their academic and personal development within an environment that can only be described as supportive, happy and aspirational for both staff and pupils.”

This year we are delighted to have been reaccredited with the Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM). Representing the dedication staff have to maintaining a high quality of science teaching and learning, this is a wonderful achievement. At Cannon Lane, we have been commended by our reviewer Bill Roffey for our 'science capital, scientific enquiry, the emphasis on outdoor learning and links to outside organisations.'
Associate Professor Jane Turner, PSQM National Director said: "Schools that have achieves a Primary Science Quality Mark have demonstrated a significant commitment to science teaching and learning. The profile and quality of science in each awarded school is very high. Children are engaging with great science both in and outside the classroom, developing positive attitudes towards science as well as secure scientific understanding and skills. Science subject leaders, their colleagues, head teachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud."
