Willaston Primary School in Douglas has been awarded an IQM - Inclusion Quality Mark Award.

It's also been granted Centre of Excellence status, something which typically takes a number of years to achieve.

The assessor from IQM noted a 'strong commitment to inclusivity and community' and a 'caring ethos'.

Abbie Irving, a teacher at Willaston School, co-ordinated the self-audit and managed the assessment process.

She explained to Lewis Foster what it took to get this kind of recognition.
