The eco-award was achieved for our work towards a sustainable lifestyle.
Awards previously achieved and which we continue to uphold the rigour and spirit in which they were awarded.
Some of these awards no longer exist. However, as a school we constantly strive to maintain and improve upon the standards we achieve in all areas, whether we receive a badge of recognition or not.
The School Achievement Award was designed to recognise the contribution of the entire school
workforce in raising pupil attainment. Awards were distributed to schools
where pupil performance showed significant improvement over time, typically a
four year period, or where in any specific year, pupil performance is
demonstrably better than most similar schools.
The QES Recognition Scheme is a recognition of a schools development to promote and achieve quality in the extended services it provides. It is public recognition that the standards embodied in the Quality Development Framework (QDF) are being met.
Hindley All Saints Church School has achieved the Bronze School Games Mark award for their commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport.
Schools received the Activemark if
- 90% or more of pupils across the school were doing at least 2 hours high quality PE and school sport a week.
By encouraging children to be healthy, safe, cared for, have a voice and influence are fundamental prerequisites to being 'ready to learn' and achieving true potential. We aim to support our children to grow healthily, safely and responsibly and to become active citizens who do their bit for society and for the environment.
Through the Leading Parent Partnership Award award, schools meet a number of longer term success criteria, such as improved pupil progress, punctuality, attendance and behaviour and increased parental involvement in school life.
Schools demonstrate that they are working to improve the following areas
Support parents as their children transition through or between schools.
Include all groups of parents in supporting their children's learning and developing their own learning.
Take steps to ensure that the school is a welcoming, communicative and friendly place for parents.
Provide clear and accessible guidance to help parents support their children's learning and development.
Provide clear guidance on the responsibilities of parents, school and pupils, and share this information with parents as a key part of the induction process.
Produce parent-friendly policies to establish effective home–school links.
Charities we support
Throughout the year we support a number of charities and do so every year, for example
Poppy Appeal, on behalf of the British Legion
Wigan and Leigh Hospice Christmas appeal and
Red Nose Day.
We also support a wide range of other charities depending on circumstance and fund raising options. Last year for example, during our enterprize week, each class chose their own charity to support giving any profit they made during the week to the charity. This was very successful and helped the children aim and work towards their chosen good cause.
