Inclusion Quality Mark

Oxford Grove has maintained  the IQM Centre of Excellence status again!

Everybody is extremely proud of the report that we have received.

The report has been shared and we are all extremely proud of our inclusive school.

What did you like most about the report?

Miss Wright’s favourite part of the report is that it recognises the ‘Oxford Grove family.’

If you want to read the report again, it is on the school website.

Miss Wright is looking forward to your answers.

How are we trying to improve?

This year Oxford Grove is focussing on certain priorities to help make our school even better.

One of the key priorities is making sure that we have lots of cross curricular links so that we are showing off our maths, reading and writing skills in all our lessons.

Next week we are going to be doing some cross curricular maths work in our topic and science books.

Are you enjoying our new topic?

Miss Wright is looking forward to your answers.
