Children and Young People’s Services
The aim of the BDA’s Quality Mark for Children and Young People’s Services is to identify and celebrate excellent practice that is carried out in this sector. Such organisations have a vital role to play in developing, monitoring and evaluating educational provision and can therefore influence practice using a top down approach.
These standards have replaced the previous ones for Local Education Authorities and have been designed to reflect the diverse remit of the new structure and encourage a cohesive and inclusive approach across this area.
The Quality Mark Standards consist of seven areas, these are:
- Leadership and management
- Educational Provision
- Educational Practice
All sections of a Children and Young People’s Directorate will be able to complete areas 1 -5 with those sections that have direct responsibility for education completing areas 1 -7. Under each of these headings are criteria that must be achieved in order to be awarded The Dyslexia Friendly Quality Mark.
