Supporting and celebrating excellence in English and mathematics provision

Background to the award


The Quality Mark aims to focus educational organisations to undertake effective self-evaluation and continuous improvement for English and mathematics, which drives better outcomes for pupils, their families and society.

The Quality Mark Framework has been developed in consultation with Local authorities, Multi Academy Trusts, practitioners and educational experts to provide a framework to promote, support and celebrate the improvement of English and mathematics from early years, through to Further Education Providers. It offers a pathways for each phase based on the unique offer of each stage of development of our young people. 

As well as driving continuous improvement and celebrating excellence through its Award, the Quality Mark also acts as a guide for the improvement journey for settings identified as needing improvement, offering settings bespoke support, advice and guidance from credible and highly skilled Improvement Specialists.
