We are proud to announce that Pioneer House High School holds the Inclusion Quality Mark Award (IQM). This award recognises Pioneer House as a school that demonstrates a strong commitment to outstanding levels of inclusive best practice and our ongoing commitment to developing educational inclusion. 


The assessor acknowledged in June 2023:


‘It is clear from the evidence submitted that the school has a deeply embedded commitment throughout the school to inclusive values and practice. The school’s core values of Community, Diversity, Learning, Wellbeing, Work and Independence really come to life as you spend time looking through the school website and speaking to all sections of the school community from pupils and parents through to teachers and Governors. Strong leadership reinforces inclusion as a priority at Pioneer House’.


‘Parents spoken to as part of the IQM assessment clearly felt that their children were cared for as individuals and that the school would also support them as parents through difficult times and beyond’.


‘I was hugely impressed by the commitment of Pioneer House to the wellbeing of the whole school community – pupils, parents and staff. The amount of work they have put into this area is significant’.


‘A strong community of belonging ethos permeates every aspect of the school’s development – the passion of the staff came across strongly in their interviews – both their desire to enable every young person to succeed and their commitment to self improvement’.


‘Students spoke with maturity about how they were able to influence change and suggest improvements at school through the School Council, but also about their responsibilities to others in their local community’.
