Raising Attainment for All (RAFA)

The Raising Attainment for All Programme was launched in June 2014, to support consistent improvement in attainment and achievement through the development of a collaborative learning system which supports the implementation of improvement methodology and enables shared learning across the country.

There are various improvement projects that are ongoing in our schools to promote attainment and achievement.  The introduction of Improvement Methodology is starting to help evidence the learning from specific improvement projects.

The schools involved with the RAfA programme are identifying their own areas for action and are being supported by professional Improvement Advisors to help them identify clear aims, measures and change ideas which will support the testing of new ways of working to improve performance.

Going forward with the RAfA programme schools are starting to identifying small cohorts of pupils that can participate in improvement projects that will impact on attendance, attainment and resilience.
