Silver Vision Friendly Award

Earlier in the year, our school staff began working really hard towards achieving a special award that recognises the work they do towards supporting our pupils with visual impairments, which affect the majority of our pupils.
We’re really pleased to announce they have recently been awarded the Silver Vision Friendly mark! This is brilliant accreditation for our school to hold, and lots of standards had to be met to achieve this.
Back in March, our school was presented with their certificate by Gwyn McCormack from Positive Eye, who runs the award scheme and they were joined by our local MP Mark Eastwood who came to celebrate our achievement too.

Thanks to Mark’s visit, our wonderful school got a mention in parliament during Prime Minister’s Questions. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Mark Eastwood MP for raising awareness of the work our school does and for fighting for opportunities for children with special educational needs.
