Quality Mark for Inclusion
DfE Guidance on temporary changes: attendance recording for educational settings whilst closed due to the coronavirus
We have put together key information and resources for schools to help maintain provision during the COVID-19 situation.
Access key information and resources to support East Sussex schools during the COVID-19 situation, including any SEND-specific information available - Including updated (28 May) DfE guidance about recording of attendance.
All East Sussex schools were awarded the East Sussex Quality Mark for Inclusion (ESQMI) in June 2018. A letter confirming this allocation was sent to all Headteachers by Stuart Gallimore, Director of Children’s Services.
The ESQMI guidance documents are listed below. An introductory summary for the Essential Criteria and the Guidance for Developing Inclusive Practice is available included in each document:
- The East Sussex Quality Mark for Inclusion: Essential Criteria; this document provides the set of standards that form the ESQMI and require a response from schools.
- The East Sussex Quality Mark for Inclusion: Guidance for Developing Inclusive Practice; a self-evaluative document to provide additional framework for schools to focus in certain areas of inclusive practice
- Information and Guidance for the East Sussex Quality Mark for Inclusion; a booklet that takes you through some of the key information points for the Quality Mark approach.
Schools can submit their response to ESQMI via the ESQMI website.
The ESQMI website sets out the Essential Criteria that form the standards for the Quality Mark for Inclusion.
The purpose of the website is for schools to complete and submit an evaluation response to the Essential Criteria Statements.
The website also provides links to additional resources to support schools’ development of inclusive practice.
Opportunities to discuss and explore further the ESQMI will be available via local SENCO hubs.
