Basic Skills Quality Mark

The Basic Skills Quality Mark is an award that celebrates and supports continuous improvement in literacy and numeracy.


It is awarded to a setting or school to recognise their provision, practice and performance in literacy and numeracy, and is valid for three years.


A school or setting must demonstrate a whole school approach to improving standards in literacy and numeracy, with evidence of the impact of its approaches.


It provides a framework for self-evaluation and continuous improvement of the basic skills of all pupils in a school, including those who underachieve and those who under attain.


The school has attained the 6th Basic Skills Agency Quality Mark, the highest level a school can achieve. Many thanks to the children and staff who have helped to gain this fantastic achievement.
