Timberley Academy Awards

Basic Skills Quality Mark


Timberley Academy is very proud to have been awarded the Basic Skills Quality Mark. It is an award that celebrates and supports continuous improvement in literacy and numeracy.

It is awarded to a setting or school to recognise their provision, practice and performance in literacy and numeracy. We have been awarded the Quality Mark for the fourth time.


A school or setting must demonstrate a whole school approach to improving standards in literacy and numeracy, with evidence of the impact of its approaches.


Basic Skills Quality Mark- Extended Provision


We have also been awarded the Basic Skills Quality Mark for Extended Provision for the second time.

The provision of extended activities and services forms part of a wider agenda and highlights was we do as a school to contribute to both national and local strategies for integrated children’s services, community regeneration and community cohesion. At the heart of these is the raising achievement agenda.

We are very proud of everything we do for our children including breakfast and tea club, Stay and Play, the fantastic work our Pastoral Care Manager does with children and their families. We have a range of after school clubs which include: football, dance, cricket, gardening, cooking, Latin, basketball, homework, ICT, craft and art and many more!

The Primary Science Quality Mark is an award scheme to develop and celebrate the quality of science teaching and learning in primary schools.  We have achieved the Science Quality Mark Silver Award.



Food For Life Bronze





In 2011 we were awarded Food for Life bronze award.  BRONZE schools serve seasonal school meals that are at least 75% freshly prepared by a well-trained school cook. Pupils and parents are involved in planning improvements to school menus and the dining experience via a school nutrition action group, boosting school meal take-up. Every pupil has the opportunity to visit a farm during his or her time at school, and opportunities are given for cooking and food growing activity.




Healthy School Award



Timberley Academy successfully achieved the National Healthy School award in 2009. To achieve the award we as a school had to demonstrate that we could meet set criteria in the following four areas: Personal Social Health Education, Emotional Health and Well- being, Healthy Eating and Physical development.


Many of the extra curricular activities that we offer at Timberley show that we are a Healthy school. We foster an understanding with our pupils about how to follow a Healthy lifestyle. Pupils are consulted at all times, through the school council, to ensure that their views are taken into consideration before decisions are made.
