Achievement service

The risks of coronavirus remain high. To keep everyone safe, please stay cautious. Get the latest information about coronavirus.

The Achievement service supports and challenges schools to raise the achievement of all pupils, including specifically targeted groups, so that all pupils have the opportunity to attend a good or better school.

It does this through School Effectiveness Strategy, which focuses on:

  • Monitoring ongoing school performance and outcomes at the end of key stages, and challenging schools to improve further through self-review and evaluation
  • Working in partnership with schools, including teaching schools, to broker school improvement support
