“Its work has enabled vulnerable youngsters to be engaged in an extensive range of activities to improve their progress and confidence.”
“We received a staggering amount of award applications, each and every one showcasing the unsung work that is taking place across England and Wales to improve the life chances of children and young people.
“Yeo Moor Primary School should be very proud of its achievement.”
The ceremony was hosted at Newbury Racecourse by model and Achievement For All ambassador David Gandy, who praised the ‘vital’ work schools are doing to tackle ‘life-limiting barriers’.
He said: “Children and young people in the UK face specific societal and contextual barriers that limit their life chances – no matter what area or what background.
“As many as one in five children and young people do not achieve expected outcomes, which can have life-long impacts on job prospects, health, wellbeing and their overall contribution to society.
“These awards recognise the vital work that children, individuals, schools, colleges and settings across the country are doing to challenge this issue.”
