Okehampton College in Okehampton Devon is to receive dedicated, specialist support to help improve outcomes for all children vulnerable to underachievement thanks to Achievement for All and Devonshire Freemasons.
The grant to Okehampton College is just part of a much larger grant of £240,000 which is being given by Freemasons to 53 schools in England and Wales through Achievement for All’s award-winning Achieving Schools programme.
Achievement for All is a leading not-for-profit organisation that works in partnership with early years settings, schools and colleges, improving outcomes for all children and young people regardless of their background, challenge or need.
The grant will provide subsidised access to the Achieving Schools programme, which dramatically enhances the goals and outcomes of pupils and addresses the issues faced by children and staff though four key areas: leadership, teaching and learning, wider outcomes and opportunities and parent and carer engagement. Schools that have benefited from this programme have seen a positive impact on the development of teaching, increased pupil attendance as well as improved confidence amongst pupils in their own abilities to achieve.
