Escuela Basica Francisco Ramirez is a privately subsidised primary school in one of the poorest districts of Santiago, Chile. Despite its circumstances, it is one of the highest achieving schools in the country.

For headteacher Cristina Barahona, a key strategy for ensuring that her 1500 pupils have the best possible opportunities in life, is to invest time in those children who are falling behind.

She offers special reinforcement classes on a daily basis and believes these are fundamental to ensure that children who are struggling remain engaged with the learning process, particularly when it comes to reading.
