Carlton Mills Primary School awarded prestigious award

Carlton Mills primary school was delighted to be awarded the prestigious World Class Schools Quality Mark (WCSQM)  accreditation in 2023, in recognition of it’s huge transformation in the last two years.

Only 140 schools across the UK meet the requirement for the World Class Schools Quality Mark (WCSQM), awarded by the education charity.

The Quality Mark assessment framework grades the students, not the school, for their demonstration of World Class skills and competencies. The premise is that if the school is truly World Class, then its students should be able to demonstrate this in whatever context they find themselves.

The framework highlights characteristics across individual areas including leadership, community, learning and workplace for secondary students, and ‘I learn’, ‘I am’ and ‘I feel’ for primary students. Over time students demonstrated how they had met each characteristic, either at school, at home, or in their local community, uploading evidence and a summary for each completed characteristic via the WCSQM internet-based app, BeWorldClass.

Claire McDonald, Head of School, said: “Carlton Mills has been on a rapid journey of school improvement over the past two years supported by Carlton Academy Trust.

“We are absolutely delighted to be awarded the World Class Schools Accreditation. Our pupils are World Class and we are so proud that they have been noticed for the amazing work they are doing, the phenomenal progress that they have made and the contributions that they make to our school and community in Manningham.”
