 Getting started with the Quality Mark:

    • Complete one section at a time. Read the guidance for a statement and trust your instinct when selecting your level of provision.
    • You should be able to meet all the points in the guidance – if not select bronze/silver or silver/gold.
    • If your school intake differs from a full primary or secondary intake, e.g. you are an infant school, review each statement in relation to your intake only as, some of the guidance may not be age appropriate for your school. Recognise what you are achieving that is appropriate for the age range of your pupils.
    • Reflect and challenge yourself and others on the level of provision. Can you moderate with others in the department or the headteacher?
    • What evidence do you have? What is the impact of this evidence?
    • On submission, reflect on what is working/not working – what is achievable short/medium/long-term? Set a few achievable targets and action achieving these.
