What's different about School Impact Awards?
Focused on impact
These awards are not about ticking boxes. They focus on the impact and positive changes you make at your school.
Achievable within a term
These awards are manageable and time-friendly so you can address more areas of school improvement.
With these awards, you'll collect just one piece of evidence showing impact for each award benchmark.
These awards are a fraction of the price of more intensive, time-heavy accreditations.
Silver or Gold level
With Gold you'll go for all the benchmarks. With Silver, you choose half of the benchmarks to work on.
Professional and school development
These awards provide valuable opportunities for CPD and are easy to link with your school improvement plan.
