The Scottish Attainment Challenge seeks to improve educational outcomes in Scotland's most disadvantaged communities and achieve equity in educational outcomes.
This can be achieved by ensuring every child has the same opportunity to succeed, with a particular focus on closing the poverty-related attainment gap.
Across Clackmannanshire, improvement activity focuses on literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing.
Through the work of the Attainment Challenge in Clackmannanshire, children and young people are part of an authority-wide journey towards improving outcomes in three key areas:
Within each school and across Clackmannanshire there is an increased focus on literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing. We are working to ensure that there is excellence in learning and teaching.
Our aim is that all children are appropriately supported in order to reach their full potential, closing the poverty related attainment gap.
We understand that raising attainment is about engagement and involvement with families and communities. We are working to promote and celebrate a strong nurturing ethos for all children, families, schools and communities across Clackmannanshire where health and wellbeing is a priority.
We want to ensure all Clackmannanshire children and young people have the best chance to develop their skills, knowledge and abilities to prepare them for learning, life and work.
We are engaging with partners and agencies to help inform actions, gather evidence and contribute to improving outcomes for all children and young people in Clackmannanshire.
