Award for quality given to Winchcombe Abbey

AfA logoWinchcombe Abbey CE Primary Academy has been recognized for the work it has been doing to improve the wellbeing, resilience and self-esteem of vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities. The academy has been working with the Achievement for All programme, since November 2011 and has just been awarded a Quality Mark. The programme works closely with parents, teachers and the individual child to secure the best outcome and attainment for their students through personalised and specific targets.

The academy has seen a marked improvement in disadvantaged pupils’ outcomes over the last couple of years, particularly in maths and English, resulting in some pupils achieving results up to a year ahead of their peers nationally.

 “I am delighted for the school that we have been awarded this prestigious award, in recognition of all the fantastic work the staff here do to enable ALL pupils to reach their full potential,” said Helen Springett, Head teacher.

The award recognises the excellent work being done by the school with Achievement for All to improve progress in reading, writing and maths for all pupils, regardless of their background challenge or need.

John Reilly, Regional Lead from the charity Achievement for All commented, “Achievement for All believes that every child can progress, and through our programme with hope to enable every child to be the best that they can be regardless of background, challenge, or need. We are delighted to be working with Winchcombe Abbey CE Primary Academy and look forward to presenting the school with this much deserved award. The whole school focus on improving outcomes, guided by strong leadership, is a real strength.”
