NACE Challenge Award (Re-accreditation)
The Broxbourne School is delighted to achieve the prestigious NACE Challenge Award for excellence in provision for More Able, Gifted and Talented Pupils for the second time
Re-accreditation of this Award is given for sustaining high quality work by the whole school, teachers and governors, in challenging all pupils, including those with high abilities, to achieve their best over the last four years.
NACE Chief Executive Rowena Gaston said: “The Broxbourne School has shown itself to be committed to developing a school where all pupils are challenged to be the best they can be. The more able and talented children are challenged and this helps the other learners to see what can be achieved.”
The award is given by NACE (the National Association for Able Children in Education), a leading national education organisation and registered charity established for over 30 years. The association exists to help the daily work of teachers providing for pupils with high abilities whilst enabling all pupils to flourish. It provides advice, training and resources for teachers, including the NACE Challenge Award Self-Evaluation Framework which The Broxbourne School has used to audit and plan what it provides for more able, gifted and talented pupils.
Assessors, who spent a day in the school, were impressed by strong leadership and management of provision which keeps the needs of more able learners at the forefront of the school’s work and the good support and challenge provided by the Governors.
