ACT Quality Standard
The ACT Quality Standard has been introduced to recognise the value of Citizenship within the school. After successfull pilots in over 50 schools across the North East of England over the past three years we are currently re-drafting the QS to include a new section and reflect new requirements by Ofsted, especially in relation to SMSC. The QS will now have three parts and include the use of the ACT Citizenship Self Evaluation Tools for either Primary or Secondary, a Citizenship action requirement, curriculum review and participation in new ACT or ACT-approved CPD. On achieving the ACT Quality Standard schools wil be able to retain this status for two years. The new Quality Standard will be launched in early 2015.
