Basic Skills Quality Mark

Craven Primary Academy are incredibly proud to have held the Basic Skills Quality Mark since 2013. 

The Primary Quality Mark award was first developed in 1997, with the help of local education authorities and primary schools  throughout England and Wales, to provide a framework that would promote, support and celebrate the improvement of literacy and mathematics in schools. It was revised in 2006 following consultation with a significant number of local authorities in the Primary Quality Mark Partnership. 

The 10 Primary Quality Mark elements are as relevant today for school improvement as they were originally. The fundamental principles of the Primary Quality Mark process, such as the involvement of the whole school community, self-review and targeted intervention, have now become central to any school’s improvement agenda, regardless of its context.
