Overall Achievements

North Crawley Church of England School has just experienced a momentous year for awards, tributes and accolades. Since our second ‘OUTSTANDING’ Ofsted judgement back in June 2013, North Crawley Church of England School has been judged an ‘OUTSTANDING’ Church of England School and has been awarded the Basic Skills Primary Quality Mark Award for the third time.

This national accreditation is awarded to schools which meet the Quality Mark Standard. The Basic Skills Quality Mark promotes, supports and celebrates progress and improvements made by a school in English and Mathematics. To achieve a Quality Mark schools have to undergo an assessment, carried out by an external accredited assessor, against the 10 ‘Elements’ of the Quality Mark framework. The National Director of the Quality Mark Programme wrote, “I hope you will share in the pride of the school and its pupils in achieving this award.”

 It is extremely pleasing to inform you that all areas inspected during the SIAMS inspection achieved outstanding grades as national expectations of schools are constantly being raised. The report highlights –

  • The distinctiveness and effectiveness of North Crawley as a Church of England school are outstanding.
  • The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is outstanding at meeting the needs of all learners.
  • The impact of collective worship on the school community is outstanding.
  • The effectiveness of the leadership and management of the school as a church school is outstanding.

Indeed, there have been celebrations all around for North Crawley Church of England School AND Stoke Goldington CE First School who form the “Ouse Valley Partnership”. At the beginning of March 2014, Ofsted judged Stoke Goldington Church of England First School to be OUTSTANDING in all areas which is certainly a fabulous accomplishment. The continued hard work and dedication of the staff of North Crawley CE School and Stoke Goldington CE First School should certainly be acknowledged. What a fantastic 'federated' effort!
