We apply a cycle of continuous improvement for each stage of the school improvement journey. During the design stage, we work with the school to define the level of support needed to implement the program with fidelity and in line with our 8 cycles.
To ensure effective delivery of the program, we support schools with suitable tools and knowledge transfer to build school capability. Annual reviews measure progress towards set targets, identifies challenges and ways to mitigate them and embeds learnings into the program design. We continue this cycle to ensure reform and improvements are embedded into the school system.
Every school we work with begins its improvement journey with a school assessment, designed to identify its unique circumstances and develop a customised solution for school improvement. This assessment identifies a school’s position on the Poor-Fair-Good-Great scale, taking into consideration the consistency and level of academic improvement.
In addition, the assessment highlights the unmet needs faced by the school’s student population, expanding past the traditional jurisdiction of schools to encompass maternal healthcare, student wellbeing and other factors that may influence a child’s ability to learn.
