School’s award for literacy

AN award for literacy and numeracy has been won by Bury and Whitefield Jewish Primary School.

The Basic Skills Quality Mark celebrates and supports continuous improvement.

Headteacher Claire Simon said: “We are thrilled to have been given this award.

“It is a true testament to the hard-working staff and pupils.”

What does it take to be given this prestigious award?

Mrs Simon explained: “We had to provide a large folder of evidence of how we met their 10 standards.

“The key areas were assessment, performance, whole school planning, integration of special educational needs, more able children, review of results and progress, reaching and learning, and parental involvement.

“The advisers watched all the teachers teach, scrutinised English, maths and topic books, and talked to parents and the school council.”
