Excited Welwyn Garden City children released a cloud of balloons to celebrate their school’s achievement when it comes to inclusion.
Homerswood Primary and Nursery School in Kirklands has been awarded the title ‘Centre of Excellence’ by the Inclusion Quality Mark.
Children wrote messages on the 220 biodegradable balloons explaining what the school meant to them.
Chair of governors Helen Jarvis said: “As a school and community, we were delighted to be awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark for the third time.
“Homerswood prides itself on being a welcoming, friendly school that is supportive and vibrant for all pupils to learn and thrive.
