The Raising Attainment Strategy - Improving Attainment and Achievement in Perth and Kinross Schools

We are committed to raising attainment and achievement and supporting every child and young person to reach their potential.

Our  Raising Attainment Strategy 2024-2027 (PDF) [593KB]  was approved by the Council's Lifelong Learning Committee on 26 August 2020.

This Strategy outlines where we are now, how we are going to improve and how we will measure success.

What is the purpose of the Strategy?

The overall aim of the Strategy is to set out our shared vision, priorities and expectations in relation to raising attainment and achievement for every child and young person to achieve the national ambition of:

  • Excellence through raising attainment: ensuring that every child achieves the highest standard in literacy and numeracy, set out within Curriculum for Excellence levels, and the right range of skills, qualifications and achievements to succeed; and
  • Achieving equity: ensuring every child has the same opportunity to succeed, with a particular focus on closing the poverty-related attainment gap.

What do we need to improve? 

Our priorities are to

  • Improve attainment, particularly in numeracy and literacy;
  • Close the attainment gap between the most and least disadvantaged children;
  • Improve children and young people's health and wellbeing; and
  • Improve employability skills and sustained, positive school-leaver destinations for all young people.

How will we know if we are making progress?

The Strategy will be monitored and evaluated by the our Raising Attainment Board which reports to the Council's Learning and Families Committee.

Actions and measures will be reviewed and updated annually for the life of the Raising Attainment Strategy.
