Overall Achievements

Stoke Goldington Church of England First School has just experienced a momentous year for awards, tributes and accolades. Since our ‘OUTSTANDING’ Ofsted judgement back in March 2014, together with the exhibiting of the children's art work at the National Galley in London, Stoke Goldington Church of England First School  has been awarded the Basic Skills Primary Quality Mark Award for the third time.

This national accreditation is awarded to schools which meet the Quality Mark Standard. The Basic Skills Quality Mark promotes, supports and celebrates progress and improvements made by a school in English and Mathematics. To achieve a Quality Mark schools have to undergo an assessment, carried out by an external accredited assessor, against the 10 ‘Elements’ of the Quality Mark framework. The National Director of the Quality Mark Programme wrote, “I hope you will share in the pride of the school and its pupils in achieving this award.”

Indeed, there have been celebrations all around for Stoke Goldington Church of England First School AND North Crawley CE School who form the “Ouse Valley Partnership”. Back in June 2013, Ofsted judged our 'sister' school, North Crawley Church of England School, to be OUTSTANDING in all areas which is certainly a fabulous accomplishment. The continued sharing of 'excellence and expertise' and the dedication and professioanlism of the staff of Stoke Goldington CE First School and North Crawley CE School should certainly be acknowledged. What a fantastic 'federated' effort!
