Inclusion Quality Mark
What is IQM?
Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) provides schools with a nationally recognised framework to guide their inclusion journey. The IQM team help schools evaluate and measure how they are performing; empowering them to improve and grow. IQM state that inclusion promotes equal opportunities for all pupils, whatever their age, ethnicity, attainment and background. It pays particular attention to the provision made for, and the achievement of, different groups of pupils within a school and any pupils who are at risk of disaffection and exclusion. At Bengeworth we believe this too and we pride ourselves in being inclusive.
What does each award mean?
There are three award levels, beginning with the IQM Inclusive School Award. Two higher award levels are available to schools that continue to grow and develop their practice in conjunction with other like-minded schools. These are the IQM Centre of Excellence Award and the IQM Flagship School Award.
We are proud that Bengeworth CE Academy have been awarded with The IQM Centre of Excellence Award!
This award has been given to around 200 UK schools and means we continue to demonstrate a commitment to outstanding levels of inclusive practice. The IQM Flagship School Award is only awarded to around 100 UK schools and this is only achieved after a school has held their IQM Centre of Excellence status for at least three years. We look forward to continuing our development as an inclusive school and becoming an IQM Flagship School in the future.
