Spring Term 2014
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 improve marking in all subjects. 'there is a consistent approach to the marking of pupils’ work, including comments and questions to guide pupils’ next steps and regular opportunities for pupils to respond'
5 classes (Y1, Y2. Y4, Y5, Y6) were visited
Governors in all classes were shown examples of the use of green for children's responses. Staff explained that the pupils were given time to respond to marking as appropriate for their age group/ability. The system is consistent and teachers all feel that it is beneficial since it helps children to judge their own progress and to know what their next steps should be.
MR held a meeting with JS and SP re SEN and with JS re monitoring of Pupil Premium funding.
SEN provision was found to be effective and flexible both in and out of the classroom.
PP funding is mostly used to buy in more support staff but also for discreet payments for outings. JS identified a continuing need for close engagement with parents.
