Special Awards

Primary Science Quality Mark GOLD

We are delighted to have attained the Gold Award for this! This is a result of many years of hard work and commitment from staff to the teaching of science in a meaningful and exciting way. It confirms our commitment to pupils' right to access science and embed scientific literacy as well as expertise for their future.

 

Artsmark Gold

Arts provision (including the  visual and performing arts: drama, music and dance) has always held a special place at Tyndale. We firmly believe that encouraging an interest in the arts adds significantly to children's overall educational experience and their ways of learning. This is why we ensure that our arts department is extremely well resourced. We’re not the only ones to think that either, as we’ve been awarded a Gold Artsmark, twice, from the Arts Council for our outstanding commitment.

 

Investor in People

In March 2011, and again in February 2014, William Tyndale School was awarded ‘Investor in People’ status.
We are very pleased that such leadership qualities within the school have been officially recognized and that staff at all levels have had the opportunity to feedback their views.

 

SingUp Gold Award

We were thrilled to have the quality of our singing recognised by SingUp! Here is an extract from the feedback given by the endorser, Leonora Davies MBE. 

It is evident that the whole school community is engaged and energised by singing and music making across the school. The lead music practitioner provides excellent leadership and staff and pupils benefit from his leadership. 

I have no hesitation in endorsing the Gold Award. Well done so now it's onwards and upwards for the Platinum Award.

Sustainable Travel

Children and their families are encouraged to think of more sustainable ways to travel to and from school – in addition to this, children are given lots of advice and training on how to keep themselves safe when out and about in the local community.

Healthy Schools Status

Our commitment to two hours per PE a week and a positive personal, social and health curriculum has been rewarded with Activemark and Healthy Schools awards.

BRONZE Quality Mark for PE

We are proud to announce that William Tyndale School has been awarded the Youth Sport Trust BRONZE Quality Mark for its commitment to physical education (PE) and school sport at its school. The Youth Sport Trust is a national charity that builds a brighter future for young people through the power of sport.

 

 

Diana Memorial Award

Two of our pupils have received this prestigious award for outstanding contribution to society through their work as a peer mentor at school. The award is also automatically given to the school for its work in enabling pupils to flourish in this area.

 

Rights Respecting School Silver Award

 

It is granted by Unicef UK to schools that are explicitly embedding the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in our policy, practice and culture. We are promoting knowledge and understanding of the Convention throughout our school community. We are beginning to see the positive impact of these actions on children and young people, staff, and on the school’s ethos, practice and environment. Children are beginning to see themselves as rights respecting global citizens and advocates for fairness and children’s rights, both locally and globally. We are the first school in Islington to achieve this prestigious award.
