Hazeldene Lower School Receive Every Child Matters Mark

The Mayor will be attending Hazeldene Lower School’s assembly at 10am, on Tuesday 14th December, to present the school with the ‘Every Child Matters’ (ECM) Quality Mark.

The ECM recognition follows the school’s ability to provide five outcomes to raise achievement: achieve economic wellbeing, stay safe, make a positive contribution, stay healthy, enjoy and achieve. Hazeldene Lower School is the first school in Bedford Borough to receive it.

The award will be presented by the Mayor to Hazeldene Lower School’s Chair of Governors, Peter Gell, by way of a glass plaque.

The Mayor, Dave Hodgson, said: “As part of our commitment to raising school standards across the borough, it gives me great pleasure to award Hazeldene Lower School with this well respected quality mark. We want to ensure that all young people are given opportunities to grow and thrive through the experiences to which they have access during their school years. We are very serious about our objective to drive up standards and improve young people’s lives as a result.”

Helen Ward, Interim Head teacher, at Hazeldene Lower School, said: “As a school, on behalf of the governors, staff, parents and children we are very proud to receive this award in recognition of all the hard work that the school does for all our pupils.”

At the award event, seven children from the school council will be putting prepared questions to the Mayor and the school will be singing two songs for participants to enjoy.

The ECM Mark was awarded after two ECM assessors examined the school’s portfolios of evidence and interviewed parents, governors, pupils and staff.
