Raoul Wallenberg Schools pursue their development work within five target areas: Good academic results; Safe children and pupils; Satisfied pupils and parents; Qualified staff; and Sound finances. Systematic quality work based on the curriculum objectives is mainly conducted in the first two target areas: Good academic results and Safe children and pupils. This gives us the opportunity to manage and develop our schools in a balanced way towards good quality, satisfied pupils and parents, committed and qualified staff and stable and long-term sustainable finances.
As RWS has long-term and sustainable ambitions, the qualitative content of its activities takes precedence over short-term financial results. We believe that this makes us attractive to talented and ambitious coworkers, which in turn generates positive development for our pre-school children and impressive academic results for our pupils and, by extension, satisfied pupils and parents.
Activities are planned and monitored as follows:
- Before each school year, a plan of activities is drawn up by the principals together with the staff. By September of each year, the plan is approved by the company’s board of directors.
- At the end of the autumn term, a mid-year analysis is performed and at the end of the spring term, a full-year analysis is carried out, which also constitutes the annual report for the school year. The analyses are agreed with the RWS executive and form the basis for the next year’s plan of activities.
- In addition to this description, planning and monitoring are carried out on a monthly basis using a number of indicators broken down into the five target areas.
Within each of the five target areas, we have a qualitative measure that we combine at the end of the school year to create a total grade that places each individual school in our internal league table.
