Alperton Community School is proud to announce that it has become an IQM Flagship School.
Only around 100 schools in the UK have achieved IQM Flagship School status. This award recognises those unique schools who played a strong leadership role in developing inclusion best practice in their school or a network of schools. It promotes equal opportunities for all pupils, regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment and background. An inclusive school is defined by Ofsted as one in which the teaching and learning, achievements, attitudes and well-being of every student matter.
Having been a Centre of Excellence school for the past three years, our school received the award as a results of its efforts to provide the very best education for all children, irrespective of differences.
Alperton has been a lead contributor to the Harrow Collegiate Teaching Schools Alliance and features in the CPD programme for 2018-2019, where it has successfully delivered a well-received EAL programme about parental engagement.
We have also developed many international links, establishing strong relationships between schools, such as Ghomme School in Tanzania, to which Alperton donated their surplus of IT equipment at the beginning of this academic year.
In addition to the collaboration with the HCTSA the school has recognised a significant group of students, described as “high talent, most disadvantaged”, which has resulted in the recruitment of a new member of staff (Most Able Lead Teacher) and also in establishing working links with an outside provider assisting with GCSE revision.
The school continues its commitment to providing an inclusive teaching and learning environment for all students, improving their learning performance and mindset development.
“I am of the opinion that Alperton Community School remains a school with the Inclusion agenda at the forefront of everything it provides for students. The environment is superb, providing an excellent teaching and learning environment for teachers, support staff, students and the local community. ” (Joe McCann MBA NPQH Director of Inclusion Quality Mark (UK) Ltd)
