Achievement for All

Achievement for All

The education system is struggling to meet the needs of one in five children and young people. The Achievement for All Schools Programme helps schools, early years settings and colleges to achieve, aspire, ensure access for all and accelerate progress regardless of background, challenge or need.

We are delighted to announce that we are working in partnership with Achievement for All – a not-for-profit organisation which aims to raise the achievement of all pupils. 

About Achievement for All

Founded in 2011, the mission of Achievement for All is simple: to close the unacceptable gaps at every level of the education system. Empowering young people, as well as their teachers, parents and carers, the charity works to transform lives through personal coaching, professional support, and a leading network of educational experts.

What does this mean for Axminster Community Primary Academy?

As an Achievement for All school, Axminster Community Primary Academy's target is to dramatically enhance the goals and outcomes of their pupils. Working with our Achievement for All coach, we will address the issues faced by children and staff, changing lives for the better through the four key areas of:

  • Leadership
  • Teaching and learning
  • Wider outcomes and opportunities
  • Parent and carer engagement

At Axminster Community Primary Academy, we strongly believe that children make progress if we all work together.  As part of the programme, some families will be invited to come into school for an information discussion with their child’s teacher to discuss how we can work together to develop potential. 

 

The school champion for the programme is Mrs C Kew.

 

Announcement

The school term will finish on Friday 17th July 2020 and children are expected to return to school on Monday 7th September.

We hope you have a relaxing and restful summer holiday.
