Three charities with one common aim


The Reedham ‘Achieving More’ project gives support to vulnerable children and families with the aim of improving access to the opportunities in state-school education.  Reedham Children’s Trust has identified ‘transition’ as a key time of heightened risk for vulnerable families.  Achieving More is therefore specifically focused on pupils who are transitioning from Primary School Year 6 to Secondary School Year 7.

In its pilot phase Achieving More is based in eight schools within the London Borough of Croydon, and the project is built as a partnership of outstanding practitioners, working with the national charity School Home Support and local Croydon based charity Reaching HigherAchieving More provides the placement of six School Home Support key workers to support pupils and their families within their primary school setting; and enables Reaching Higher building on the work in primary schools to deliver their mentoring and therapeutic sport and drama interventions within two secondary schools.

With a focus on long term educational achievement, the Achieving More project enables seamless contact and support for children and families as they transition from a junior to senior phase in their education.
