Best Practice Awards

At Sherwood, our ambition to develop a rich and balanced Curriculum and sustain best practice in every aspect of our provision, is reflected in the following Awards and Quality Marks awarded to our School.


Primary Science Quality Mark

PSQM is a programme of self-evaluation, framed by 13 criteria covering primary school science leadership, teaching, learning and enrichment, against which science subject leaders audit current practice and develop and implement a whole school improvement plan. We are delighted to be awarded with the Primary Science Quality Mark, reflecting our commitment developing our School leaders and achieiving a high quality Science Curriculum at Sherwood.


Step Outside Quality Mark

Outdoor learning is a key feature of the Curriculum at Sherwood. Our Forest School provision starts when pupils enter our EYFS Unit and skills are developed across KS1 and KS2. Our commitment to outdoor learning and the development of links across the Curriuclum has been awarded the Step Outside Quality Mark in our EYFS Unit.


School Sports Gold Award

Sherwood has been awarded the School Games GOLD Award for our PE and Sport provision alongside our commitment to the development of competition across our school and into the community. Sherwood children are highly engaged in sport and achieve highly at competitions and tournaments. Our pupils are involved in leadership activities and we have local links with clubs and other establishments in the local area.
