We are delighted to announce that St Martin’s Primary School in Worle is the first school in North Somerset to complete the full accreditation process of becoming a Quality Mark school with the Charity ‘Achievement for All’ This is a real achievement and recognition of the progress the school has made to improving the outcomes of vulnerable and disadvantaged learners at their school.
Over a dozen schools in North Somerset have already signed up to be a part of the national Achievement for All Programme. The Achievement for All programme is initially a two year programme focused on improving outcomes for the lowest achieving 20% of pupils in an indivdual school.
In the first year the school targets a selection of pupils for highly intensive support and then in the second year it extends the benefits of this work to the wider school community.
The focus of the programme is on Leadership and Management, Teaching and Learning, Wider Outcomes and the highly successful ‘Structured Conversations’ with parents and carers. These conversations have been identified by schools as the most significant element of the programme, encouraging school to reach out and go further than ever to extend and improve relationships between parents and schools.
