IQM Inclusive School Award & Centre of Excellence Status

Kedington Primary received the inclusive quality mark in June 2023. We were delighted to be granted 'centre of excellence' status. 

The IQM Inclusive School award recognises the ongoing commitment by schools to provide the very best education for all children irrespective of differences.

The report descibed the school as follows:

'Kedington Primary Academy is a lively, happy school where children enjoy their experiences and show great respect for each other. The school has a calm, purposeful environment where everyone knows what is expected of them. All staff have high expectations of children and offer a caring, supportive and encouraging environment where positive relationships are crucial to the progress of all the children. There is a strong emphasis on kindness and good manners and this was evident whenever the children were asked a question or when they moved around the school. They regularly open doors for adults and greet them with a smile. Children mirror this in their relationships with adults and peers alike.”

“The school uses the Trauma Informed Schools’ approach which was a major shift in ideas for the staff surrounding support for the whole child and understanding their needs. The SLT is committed to raising standards and providing staff and pupils with the best possible environment and opportunities. The Trust also provides a great deal of support for the school in terms of professional development, data tracking and providing an ambitious curriculum which the school uses well to offer children a fully inclusive, coherent and progressive way forward in their education. The curriculum aims are clearly set out within the CUSP (the Curriculum with Unity Schools Partnership)”
