In this section you will find information about the actions we are taking to improve our school.
What we INTEND to improve in 2018/2019
THE QUALITY OF TEACHING, LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT.
We will work together to:
- READING Y2 – Y6: Introduce pupils to a wide range of challenging books and other reading matter, and ensure that pupils, including the most able, respond to and discuss what they have read.
- MATHEMATICS: Improve the teaching of the mathematical concepts necessary for solving multi-step problems.
- WRITING EYFS/ KS1: Increase the motivation of all boys to write by linking appropriate texts to their interests and by providing the structure and skills to organise their ideas. (Talk for Writing)
4. PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, BEHAVIOUR AND WELFARE: Improve the teaching of spiritual, moral, social and cultural development by ensuring all staff understand the definition of each area and are able to seize the opportunities provided in the ‘hidden curriculum’ for SMSC. All staff know what outstanding SMSC outcomes are. Improve spiritual development by providing more structured opportunities for quiet thought, self-reflection and consideration of national and global issues. Improve spiritual development by providing more creative opportunities to explore personal spirituality.
