What We Do?
Our Education and Community Programme combine community engagement and teacher capability development to ensure children receive the best quality education, maximising their future opportunities.
Our efforts in the school and the community are mutually reinforcing to ensure we embed system-wide change. Regular attendance is essential to optimise learning outcomes in the classroom. In turn, the learning transformation that parents and other community members see in the schools builds their commitment to ensuring the regular attendance of all children.
The effectiveness of Reach to Teach programmes is reflected in the skills demonstrated by teachers and the progress made by pupils.
However, these improvements need to be measured in order to see how the programme is doing and if further developments are needed.
This measurement uses simple yet very effective assessment systems based on global best practice. We develop these systems working with leading UK educational experts and then adapt them to meet the demands of the remote, rural environments where we operate.
We conduct both formative and summative assessments and track individual performance over time:
- Our formative assessment is ongoing and takes place in every lesson. It enables teachers to understand the learning of individual pupils and then respond and adapt their teaching accordingly.
- Our summative assessments are bespoke measures which are benchmarked against government expectations of pupil performance.
