Whole School Approach: Achievement for All

Professor Sonia Blandford | View as single page | Feedback/Impact

Philosophical approach

Achievement for All is founded on aspiration, access and achievement. Schools are encouraged to develop a culture of high expectations for achievement for all children. There is a focus on raising aspirations across the school (teachers, other staff, parents and carers as well as the children) and increasing access (supporting and promoting participation and engagement).

Here is a summary of impact from a primary school taken from the AFA website:
