Rushcliffe School is re-accredited as World Class
Only 16 schools in the country have been re-accredited as World Class, as part of the WCSQM inaugural re-accreditation programme, and Rushcliffe School is one of them!
In comparison to the national inspection regime, WCSQM assesses the students not the school, and World Class Schools have to re-accredit every two years, to retain their status. The assessment is therefore up to date, and relies on current, fresh, and robust evidence. Schools that have achieved reaccreditationhave been supporting their students to develop into World Class young people year on year, over a sustained period of time.
The re-accreditation process is challenging. In order to qualify for re-accreditation schools must have retained their ‘outstanding’ Ofsted judgement. Students have to work collaboratively with a partner World Class school, to prove to their partner students how their own school has supported them to retain their World Class credentials. The assessment framework is composed of skills and competencies that students need, to be World Class citizens in a dynamic global economy.
Through working in partnerships, students develop their networking skills and become part of a World Class student alumni association which provides them with supportive, professional and potentially enduring relationships.
Out of the 18 schools which were awarded the Mark from this tranche, only 16 have achieved reaccreditation. In total, WCSQM is a network of over 60 non-selective state secondary and special schools, with 30 new non-selective state primary, secondary and special schools applying for the Mark this year.
The re-accrediting schools received their award at the WCSQM Symposium event in the summer, at which they were treated to a keynote talk from Turner Prize winning artist Grayson Perry CBE.
‘At WCSQM we want to give World Class students at non-selective state schools what they deserve – World Class opportunities. We want our students to get the chance to partner and network with their peers from other World Class schools, so they become, collectively, a force to be reckoned with,’ Miranda Perry, Director, WCSQM.
