Basic Skills Quality Mark

This award is in addition to the whole school award and recognises the outstanding practice in the Early Years.


Leading in Parental Partnership Award (LPPA)

This award is a national award that recognises the work carried out within school in engaging and working in partnership with parents and carers for the achievement of pupils.

Artsmark Gold Award

Easterside Academy has been awarded the Artsmark award to celebrate our commitment to the arts.
The Artsmark is a national award scheme that recognises schools with a high level of provision in the arts. Artsmark provides a benchmark for arts provision which encourages schools to consider the opportunities they offer in art, dance, drama and music. By gaining an Artsmark a school shows its commitment to the wider development of young people and teachers and to raising the profile of the arts in the school and local community.

Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Bronze Award

Awarded by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom, the LOtC Mark (Bronze) accredits those schools that have a strong awareness of the benefits of providing frequent, continuous and progressive LOtC experiences to all pupils and have begun to integrate LOtC into the life of the school.

Learning outside the classroom is known to contribute significantly to raising standards & improving pupils’ personal, social & emotional development. It also contributes to the quality and depth of learning (OFSTED, Learning Outside the Classroom - How far should you go? 2008).
