We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Centre of Excellence status by the IQM as well as receiving the coveted Inclusive School Award.

The school had applied to be assessed against very strict criteria for the IQM's Inclusive School Award in January 2022. As a result we were booked in for two days of strict and thorough grilling where the IQM assessor interviewed, parents, learners, staff and Governors as well as scrutinised the school's paper work. Lessons were also seen and scrutiny of books took place.

By the end of day 1 the assessor stated that she had seen some excellent practice, often sector leading, but there was still more to see and more to assess. It was amazing then to hear after moderation that not only had the school gained the Inclusion Quality Mark but that the excellent practice seen at the school meant that we were also assigned the status of being a Centre of Excellence.

We are so proud of this fact as this is recognition of all the hard work the staff at the school put into teaching and learning. It also recognises the excellent attitude of our learners as well as the support of our parent body. It was amazing to be recognised for the fact that we aork strongly as a school to live up to our motto of 'Achievement for All'

So, from Ysgol Bryn Elian – Thank you very much to all concerned.
