Of course, it’s essential that our children can read, write and add up to the level that you would expect for their age, however at REAch2, the school has always been about so much more.
Think back â€“ what do you remember about your primary school days?
Was it phonics lessons or learning how to do long division? Was it a brilliant school trip where you camped under the stars, built a raft, or crossed a lake?.
These types of great opportunities â€“ the memorable experiences that cement themselves into your psyche â€“ happen in every school. Whatâ€™s different for us is that we consciously codify it into a set of promises so that it becomes something that EVERY child is entitled to and â€œ11 before 11â€ is the way we do this.
Across each of our 60 schools, we are ambitious for our children to have broad horizons in life and high aspirations for themselves. We want our children to be inspired and challenged so that each one can develop their unique potential to the full. 11 before 11 takes our children beyond the usual, to open opportunities in life and inspire them to move forward in their own lifeâ€™s adventure.
We are incredibly proud of â€œ11 before 11â€. We know the impact that it has had so far, and strongly believe that its importance has only grown because of Covid-19 and the impact that the pandemic has had on society, on our communities, and on our families. We will continue to invest in delivering it so that every childâ€™s experience of school with us is exceptional and memorable for all the right reasons.
