We are proud to announce we have been awarded the Gold Artsmark Award by the Arts Council England. The Arts Council supports schools to develop and celebrate their commitment to arts and cultural education. Artsmark builds children’s confidence, character and resilience. It embeds creativity across the curriculum. It is vital that children have the opportunity to learn and enjoy arts and culture from an early age. It enriches their childhood and inspires future careers.

The Arts Council stated that St. Hugh’s now has “more sophisticated arts-rich curriculum planning, boosting the use of the Arts across all subjects and making learning more engaging for young people”.

We are very pleased to have achieved this ward and will continue to ensure our children receive the best arts-rich curriculum we can provide.

Liverpool Counts Quality Mark

We had our official assessment visit in December 2021, and are delighted to announce that we were awarded the Silver Liverpool Counts Quality Mark.
As part of the official report, it was noted that our strengths were:
  • The knowledge, support and dedication of the Maths Champion has meant that maths is a central part of school development. The school has a comprehensive programme of CPD and support for all staff members. 
  • The whole school approach to teaching and learning (including a strong focus on maths talk and oracy) provides a strong foundation and pupils demonstrate positive attitudes to numeracy and mathematics.  Whole school event days and initiatives such as Puzzle of the Day have contributed to the raising of the profile of mathematics in the school and in the wider community.
 A big thank you to all the excellent and ongoing hard work by all children and adults in our school community!

Reading Quality Mark

We are proud to have been awarded the Silver Reading Quality Mark! In partnership with the National Literacy Trust, the Liverpool Reading Quality Mark has been developed to focus on promoting reading for enjoyment. Studies show that children who read for pleasure are much more likely to do significantly better at school and future employment than those who do not.

This award shows that the children and staff at St. Hugh’s value reading and work hard to foster a love of reading from a very early age. Our Reading Quality Mark report states that “Staff are engaged and enthusiastic about reading and promote reading for pleasure in classes.” Well done to all the staff, children and families for supporting all our work on reading!

We have been awarded the History Quality Mark by the History Association for our commitment to providing high quality history teaching and learning to the children at St. Hugh’s.
