Achievement for All

Iqra has been working in partnership with Achievement for All since Autumn 2015 and has seen a marked improvement in many aspects including working with parents and carers on children’s targets as part of the AfA framework.

Achievement for All works closely with parents, carers, teachers and the individual child to secure the best outcome and attainment for the pupils through personalised and specific targets. The specific programmes of support aim to raise children’s self-esteem, build stamina and resilience and remove barriers to learning.

Iqra is now working towards the Achievement for All Quality Mark which would recognise the impressive work being done by the school to improve progress in reading, writing and maths for all pupils, particularly those with barriers to learning.

Iqra is continuing to build on the success and accomplishments of this effective initiative.

Parents and carers are invited to termly rounds of Structured Conversations with their child’s coach/mentor usually taking an hour. Additionally, Achievement for All have worked closely with our staff to support our drive to improve the quality of marking and feedback that is given to our children, not just by teachers but by all adults working at the school. This has made a significant difference to our pupils.
