High View are delighted to announce that they are 1 of 9 schools in the United Kingdom to be awarded the prestigious Gold Primary Quality Mark in Geography.
Jon Cannell, Primary Curriculum Leader at the GA says: ‘Each year the Geographical Association’s National Moderation Team is highly impressed by the quality of the submissions they receive. They are packed with evidence and examples of the learning, assessment and improvement systems that underpin high quality geography. This award goes to schools that use geography to drive their curriculum, engage pupils, raise standards and improve the outlook for each pupil. Through the rigorous Quality Mark framework the Geographical Association supports and develops the school’s understanding of the subject whilst being a mainstay in whole school improvement.
Making sense of the complex world around us, even for the most open minded, requires a range of skills, including being able to enquire, interpret, analyse, communicate and problem solve, often instantly and always with possible consequences. All Quality Mark schools demonstrate how they successfully help pupils find relevance and learning from the commonplace and everyday as well as the exceptional and extreme.’
We are very proud of all our staff and our children in having achieved this award.
