Reach features in TES article about collaboration
Reach Academy's work with Ted Wragg Trust to transform All Saints Academy Plymouth featured in the TES (Times Education Supplement) on the 29th March 2019.
The article explored the impact that this unusual partnership had had on a school that has struggled for a long time and which serves a vulnerable community. It featured Ed Vainker, Executive Principal, reflecting on the trust's desire to work in partnership with schools to support them around teaching, learning and curriculum.
Headteacher Lee Sargeant set out the impact reach's support has had:
The coaching programmes have been transformational. Whenever I have found any emerging needs, Ed has been on hand to offer not only advice but also highly experienced senior leaders to help implement changes and drive improvements. This real-time support from leaders has been vital in driving up standards at the school and ensuring they are embedded.
