Inclusion Quality Mark - CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE!

We were first awarded IQM Centre of Excellence in December 2017. Inclusion at Knotty Ash is re-assessed annually to ensure that we still live up to the standards of CoE status.

Knotty Ash has been accredited as a CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE FOR INCLUSION.  We were assessed for the national award of Inclusion Quality Mark on December 12th 2017.  The full report can be read by following the link below.  Some highlights for us at school are:


Throughout the day, without exception, everyone I met displayed the same warmth and helped to make my visit such a special and enriching experience.  It is fair to say that Knotty Ash Primary has inclusivity running through their school, it is their 'golden thread'.


The children exude happiness and described their school experience here as 'amazing'.


Indeed, everyone at Knotty Ash shares the same vision: inclusion is not something you do but something you breathe, and here at Knotty Ash you live and breathe it throughout your visit.


This document clearly demonstrates the outstanding practice in place within the school and the on-going commitment to inclusion.
