Basic Skills Quality Mark

“We are proud to announce that Spires Academy have been awarded the Basic Skills Quality Mark.

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

The Quality Mark 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.

The Quality Mark 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.”
