Accreditation for your school

Awards that support and accredit schools for outstanding non-curricular provision.

We offer a growing range of non-curricular awards for schools.

Relevant to all schools and educational settings from early years to post-16, our awards allow you to demonstrate your work towards sustainable school improvement. All schools and educational settings from early years to post-16 are eligible to achieve an award.

A school first undertakes a self-evaluation in order to determine its starting point. Any existing elements of good practice will count towards accreditation. Participants will then use the award framework to improve and embed their practice. Schools have told us that they value being recognised for their achievements, and that self-evaluation of existing practice can be a powerful tool.
