“We are pleased to be using [Achievement for All] as a programme to support Children in Care again. We were part of the national pilot and saw a significant improvement with progress for our children. It is enabling our Virtual School to develop our training capacity for schools and academies with children in care on roll.”

– Virtual School Head, Gloucestershire


“The AfA programme has been a great support in transforming our school culture, especially in terms of identifying and planning for the needs of vulnerable learners such as Children Looked After. My Achievement Coach has supported me as I stepped up to Senior Leadership and offers a valuable external perspective on our provision and systems, helping me to evaluate both when change is needed and where our existing strengths are. Being an Achievement for All school has really benefited our students as we have been able to establish a mentoring programme so that vulnerable young people have a named staff member listening to and advocating for them. In addition, I have had access to new CPD opportunities such as the Croydon Designated Teacher hub where good practice is shared. This helped me bring new ideas back to school and increase opportunities for our young people.”
