Outcomes for pupils




What does the school need to do to improve further?



– ensuring that all teachers set goals to stretch and challenge the most able pupils, including the most able disadvantaged, particularly in writing


– providing more opportunities for teachers to share and disseminate best practice and benefit from each other’s expertise.



– monitoring activities focus more sharply on the progress made by all groups of pupils, especially the most able, the most able disadvantaged and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities


– barriers to learning faced by pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are identified swiftly and that teaching takes account of and overcomes these barriers


– governors and senior leaders develop a sharper understanding of the revised published data regarding outcomes for pupils at the end of key stage 2.
