A Welwyn Garden City primary school has been awarded for its “inclusive practice and nurturing ethos”.
Peartree Primary School was bestowed with the Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) and named as a Centre of Excellence for Inclusion following an assessment.
The IQM was established in the UK in October 2004 with the objective of supporting both state and independent schools to become inclusive.
Inspectors said in their report: “Peartree Primary School is a welcoming and happy school that prides itself on its inclusive practice and nurturing ethos.”
To celebrate the achievement pupils created a beautiful piece of artwork, which every child contributed to, and was unveiled in a special assembly by Welwyn Hatfield’s deputy mayor Barbara Fitzsimmons.

Acting deputy head and inclusion leader Clare Bellwood explained that school leaders carefully assess the needs of each child and plan for them individually.
She said: “We take a holistic view. This involves using a child-centred approach to learning so our children feel they have ownership of their own education.”
