Our Awards

School Games Mark


We received the Bronze Level School Games Mark in 2018. The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.



From November 2018, St Cleopas will be working towards the Artsmark Award. The award is due to completed at the end of November 2020.

Healthy Schools Award
We have received the National Healthy Schools Award. We want all of our pupils to be healthy and achieve in school and in life. The National Healthy Schools Programme has four core themes : Personal, social and health education -  Healthy eating  - Physical activity - Emotional health and wellbeing, including bullying. Each theme includes a number of criteria that we had to fulfil in order to achieve National Healthy School Status. 

St Cleopas has won the prestigious Green Flag Award as an Eco-School in 2011. Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life. Schools work towards gaining one of three awards – Bronze, Silver and the prestigious Green Flag award, which symbolises excellence in the field of environmental activity.  Bronze and Silver are both self accredited through this website and Green Flag is externally assessed by Keep Britain Tidy.

Liverpool dyslexia Friendly School
We have been awarded the Dyslexia Friendly Schools award for the following reasons:
Our polices contain statements of good practice in relation to dyslexia.
All our staff including governors have undertaken awareness training.
SEN governor formally involved in policy and practice amendments.
  • We have a senior member of staff who is responsible for the induction of new staff.
  • Pupils are identified early as recommended under the SEN code of practice. The SEN register is up to date.
  • Pupils are in mixed ability groups for foundation subjects.

We are a school that is committed to Fairtrade. This means we help young people understand about how trade works and how to
make global trade fairer. We  use Fairtrade products as
far as possible, and take action for Fairtrade in the school and
local community. This includes buying local produce for our school meals where possible and supporting local builders and contractors. Every one deserves a Fair Share!

Fmsis. We are lucky to have staff and governors with sound knowledge of value for money and ensuring that all funds are spent to improve outcomes for the children.

This assessment tool is a key element of the Standard and is designed to enable schools to benchmark their own performance against a nationally recognised statement of good practices as well as identify areas for development.

For each element of the Standard, this assessment tool shows the evidence that governors and senior managers in schools should expect to see to confirm compliance with the Standard. It recognises that those undertaking the assessment will know from their own direct experience whether a number of the required components are in place.
The assessment will normally be completed by a senior manager, but could also be completed by other staff and/or governors (separately at first, but ultimately together) so a group consensus view can be arrived at later..
