Achievement for All has three approachesto school improvement:
for All Children and Young People
Achievement for All is based on the belief that teachers and school leaders can have a
on all children and young people by developing their achievement, access and aspirations.
This means having high expectations of what they can achieve, working in partnership with parents to set targets for their learning and track their progress, and increasing the range of learning opportunities available to them demonstrating how:
Achievement, Access and Aspirations are each broad terms encompassing multiple factors that impact on an individual’s life chances. By changing teaching and learning behaviours, vulnerable and underachieving learners, including those with special educational needs and disabilities, will achieve.
A shared vision - a core set of values and beliefs, shared by all staff, that all children and young people have the right to opportunities to develop their learning
Commitment – to creating an ethos and culture of achievement across the whole school, a determination to secure the best provision for vulnerable children and young people and to effective continuing professional development of staff
Collaboration – with parents, children and young people and others within and beyond the school, including other schools, to develop and share best practice
Communication – with and between children and young people, their parents, staff, other schools and other agencies
The impact of achievement, access and aspiration should change a student’s life chances and also change the behaviours of teachers [a shift/development of practice to lead pupils’ learning].
Goal: An ambitious, measurable end of the year aim for teachers – includes each of the 3A’s
Aspiration is about having high expectations about what individual learners can achieve
Aspiration can be broken down into the elements needed by the student to learn
