    The Inclusion Quality Mark identifies successful inclusive practice in schools. It consists of a range of elements, including pupil progress, attitudes, values, personal development and the learning environment, and focuses on how these elements contribute towards the achievement of all pupils.

    Oxford Grove is delighted to have been assessed as a Centre of Excellence in inclusion. This shows that we are committed to sustaining the Inclusion Quality Mark ethos through collaborative activities; have the capacity to share and disseminate good inclusion practice across a broader cluster of schools, and engage in classroom level research that explores inclusive practice.

    • Inclusion is central to the school’s vision and purpose and this sets the framework in which all work takes place in this warm and welcoming school.

    • Individuals are valued at this school and the very happy, caring atmosphere is immediately evident.

    • Excellent transition practices are in place for pupils entering the school, for pupils transferring from year to year and for those transferring to secondary school.

    • The school’s learning environment is very well thought out with excellent learning spaces and is continually being enhanced. Display is exceptional and clearly demonstrates the school’s inclusive ethos.
