Accreditations & Awards
We have the following accreditations:
Outdoor Learning School
All areas of the curriculum can be delivered using the outdoors, children offered regular outdoor learning opportunities often become active participants in their own learning and take ‘ownership’ of their own local natural environments.
Healthy Schools Certificate
This National Healthy Schools Award is awarded to Leonard Stanley Primary School in recognition of the health education children receive and the sporting opportunities provided for them. The award is also about physical health, good health and happiness inside and out. A Healthy School involves the whole school community.
Activemark is a national award for primary schools that recognises and rewards a school for its commitment to promoting the benefits of physical activity and offering good physical activity provision. The programme provides schools with a thorough auditing and development tool to help raise the standard of physical activity provision.
We have been awarded the following:
Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA)
The Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) supports schools across the UK to embed children’s human rights in their ethos and culture. The award recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all children and young people realise their potential. The award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The initiative started in 2006 and schools involved in the Award have reported a positive impact on relationships and well-being, leading to better learning and behaviour, improved academic standards and less bullying.
Pupil Premium Awards Winner
The purpose of the pupil premium awards is to showcase schools' hard work and innovation in supporting their disadvantaged pupils. Schools must also have high percentages of disadvantaged pupils making expected progress in reading, writing and maths, sustained high or non-declining attainment for non-disadvantaged pupils, and be judged good or outstanding by Ofsted.
Eco School Bronze Award
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.
International Schools Award
The British Council offers the International School Award (ISA) as an accreditation framework for schools to record and evaluate their international work and embed it into the curriculum and whole school ethos. This award celebrates the work of the school in impacting on developing pupils’ awareness of the cultures of other countries, while still promoting an understanding of their own.’
