Inclusion Quality Mark
Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Engineering College is outstanding in its inclusion policy and practice.
The school leaves no stone unturned in its mission to deliver the very best for every single pupil in its care. Inclusivity permeates through the school and the commitment of the staff to this clear ethos is of the very highest order.
Achievement is built upon a common understanding, shared by staff, pupils and their parents, that no-one will ever fall by the wayside and that everything possible is done to remove barriers to learning.
Leadership, at all levels, is outstanding. An open and inspirational culture pervades and energises a 'can do - will do' culture. Levels of academic achievement have risen significantly and the school's sophisticated pupil tracking system ensures that maximum effort is directed towards the individual needs of each and every pupil.
Pupils paid tribute to the work of their teachers, and parents value highly the excellent communications between school and home. The attitude and behaviour of pupils throughout the period of the assessment was exemplary, both in and out of lessons.
Our Lady's is constantly reviewing its practice and seeking to improve its impact upon the quality of its teaching and learning and wider experiences for all of its pupils. It has a clear vision for the future and is committed to maintaining the highest of standards.
The school has a commitment to all and its outstanding inclusive practices are worthy of being shared with local, national and international partners. The school's application to become a Centre of Excellence is a logical next step in contributing to that wider community.
I am of the opinion that the school fully meets the standard required by the Inclusion Quality Mark. There are only minor areas requiring development and the school is aware of these. I recommend that the school be awarded the Mark and be reassessed in 3 years' time.
I also recommend that the school be awarded Centre of Excellence status. Its outstanding work in inclusion should be shared with its wider community, locally, nationally and internationally. This will be reviewed in 12 months' time
