The Five Islands School has been awarded the Investors in People Standard.

They join the Steamship Company who have held the quality mark for 18 years.

Writing in the school newsletter, Head Teacher Linda Todd told staff and parents that the inspector commented on the period of change and unsettlement at the school.

The assessor felt it was a credit to the commitment of the staff and management who remained with the school, and to an exceptional new Head Teacher, that the school has emerged from this positively.

Some of the strengths that were noted include much better leadership, more openness, honesty and collaboration amongst staff, and improved school development planning.
