Achievement service

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
  • Working with Middlesbrough Achievement Partnership (MAP) to support a range of school improvement strategies which promote effective leadership and teaching and learning.
