Autumn term 2013
Links with the School Improvement Plan (SIP) 2013-2014
(How does the visit relate to a priority in the SIP? Which specific part is it linked to?)
To further improve achievement of able pupils. 'expectations of all pupils are consistently high and that work set is sufficiently challenging, especially for the most able'
4 classes (R, Y1, Y3, Y5) + PPA cover were visited.
Governors found that there is a consistent use of individual targets for pupils throughout the school and that assessment is used to tailor learning to each child's needs. Teachers plan effectively to present children with activities of sufficient challenge, with the most able being catered for by for example, 'extended input' and small group work. The use of 'I can' statements enables self assessment and dialogue between the teacher and pupil.
IH carried out a Health and safety visit, during which no issues were found to be of concern.
MR conducted a data review with JS which was generally very favourable. Areas to be monitored included the gap between the performance of FSM and non-FSM children in KS1 and progress in Maths in KS2.
AG met with VD (PE cordinator) to review PE and found this to be a well organised area of the curriculum.
