Achievement for All is a whole school improvement framework delivered in partnership with
schools, which aims to raise the aspirations, access and achievement of your child.
Why is the school working with Achievement for All?
The school wants to make sure all children achieve their best. We want to identify new
educational opportunities for children and young people to improve their achievement, their
enjoyment of school and their life chances.
How will you be involved?
- You will be invited to attend a structured conversation meeting where you and your
child's class teacher will look at what your child needs to learn better and how to
make better progress.
- At the structured conversation, you will be invited to tell the school what you hope
your child will achieve.
- You can also find out how you can work closely with the school and become more
involved in your child's learning.
