Ravenshall School Receives The 'Quality Lead' Award
A national accolade for quality has been awarded to Ravenshall School for its work in developing its pupils' learning, behaviour, well-being and self-esteem.
The Quality Lead Award has been developed by leading education charity Achievement for All (AfA), and recognises the impressive work being done by the school to improve progress in reading, writing and maths for all pupils.
Achievement for All offers support programmes to schools and settings to help them improve outcomes in the lowest achieving 20 per cent. Ravenshall School has been working in partnership with the charity since 2014 and has seen a marked improvement in many aspects including working with parents and carers on children’s targets as part of the AfA framework.
Achievement for All works closely with parents, carers, teachers and the individual child to secure the best outcome and attainment for their students through personalised and specific targets. The unique programmes are delivered directly to schools and settings via a highly skilled and trained team of expert coaches and specialist online support tool called The Bubble.
Schools have the opportunity to win two awards - Quality Mark and Quality Lead, of which Quality Lead is the most prestigious. A school is assessed for Quality Mark within the second year of the Schools Programme. Once a school has been awarded a Quality Mark, it may then move on to achieve Quality Lead status.
Schools are assessed in various categories such as strategic planning, quality of teaching and learning, effective use of interventions, pupil progress and community relationships.
Laura Bromberg, Regional Lead at Achievement for All, said:
“We are delighted to present Ravenshall School with this prestigious award – a real stamp of quality for their high standards in leadership, teamwork, quality of teaching and pupil progress. The target groups we have been working with have made more than expected progress and are closing the gap with their peers.
“However, it’s not just the target groups who have made significant progress. Our programmes are designed to be a whole school improvement tool and Ravenshall School has shown a continued commitment and success in improving outcomes for all children across the whole school and that of other children within the local area.
“Achievement for All believes that every child can progress, and through our programmes we hope to enable every child to be the best that they can be regardless of background, challenge, or need. Huge congratulations to teachers, parents and children at Ravenshall School for all their hard work. A truly deserved award.”
