Investors in People Award

Investors in People is the national standard which sets out a level of good practice for the training and development of people. It demonstrates our commitment to lifelong learning.

 

Healthy Schools Award

This award recognises not only the teaching of the healthy schools curriculum but also the emotional, physical and learning environment that the school provides.

 

Basic Skills Quality Mark

We define basic skills as:

  • The ability to read, write and speak in English and to use mathematics at a level necessary to function and progress at work and in society in general.
  • The Quality Mark is awarded to schools that reach a minimum standard in teaching literacy and numeracy across the school.

 

Early Years Basic Skills Quality Mark

This award is in addition to the whole school award and recognises the outstanding practice in the Early Years.

 

Leading in Parental Partnership Award (LPPA)

This award is a national award that recognises the work carried out within school in engaging and working in partnership with parents and carers for the achievement of pupils.

Artsmark Gold Award

Easterside Academy has been awarded the Artsmark award to celebrate our commitment to the arts.
The Artsmark is a national award scheme that recognises schools with a high level of provision in the arts. Artsmark provides a benchmark for arts provision which encourages schools to consider the opportunities they offer in art, dance, drama and music. By gaining an Artsmark a school shows its commitment to the wider development of young people and teachers and to raising the profile of the arts in the school and local community.

 

Sainsbury’s School Games Silver Mark

The Sainsbury's School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.

 

Green Flag Award

This award is an Eco-School award that recognises the work that has been carried out at Easterside Academy to ensure various goals are achieved in areas such as composting, recycling, and saving energy.

 

Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Bronze Award

Awarded by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom, the LOtC Mark (Bronze) accredits those schools that have a strong awareness of the benefits of providing frequent, continuous and progressive LOtC experiences to all pupils and have begun to integrate LOtC into the life of the school.

Learning outside the classroom is known to contribute significantly to raising standards & improving pupils’ personal, social & emotional development. It also contributes to the quality and depth of learning (OFSTED, Learning Outside the Classroom - How far should you go? 2008).
