Reading Recovery Overview Reading Recovery is a daily individualised reading programme for the poorest readers, to unpick the specific problems they encounter with their reading and writing. It is aimed at children between the ages of 5 years 9mths and 6 years 3 mths. They receive a maximum of 100 lessons of half an hour in length over 20 weeks. Each lesson follows a rigid programme consisting of reading familiar books for fluency and expression, reading a more challenging book alongside a running record, letter and word work at the board, writing a message and reassembling the cut up sentence and introducing the new text for the following days running record. The children take home books to read at home and reassemble and write out their sentence. The aim is for the children to make accelerated progress with their reading and writing and to catch up with their peers.
Impact of Reading Recovery Support From October 2013, 8 children have accessed the programme. 4 have been discontinued and 1 has been referred back to school for further support, to receive either LSS support, TELL (Teaching Early Literacy and Language) or to be heard as an individual reader. 1 child has also been put forward for a Statutory Assessment. 2 children are continuing the programme to receive 100 lessons. They are currently at lesson 90.
Role in school In 2013 / 14, alongside working with 4 Reading Recovery children, I also supported Guided Reading groups in Year 2 and TELL intervention groups in year 1. I also monitored TELL intervention groups administered by Mrs. Hammami and Miss Hodgkins. Now I am a fully trained Reading Recovery Teacher, we have looked at the wider impact my role can have in the school. This year I will be delivering Reading Recovery lessons to 3 children from Year 1and 1 child from Year 2, all of whom receive Pupil Premium. On completion of this cycle (in approximately April) a further 4 children will be assessed for the programme. We have also identified a TELL intervention group of 6 children in Year 1, to be delivered 3 times a week over 8 weeks and 2 further literacy intervention groups of 6 children in each group from Year 1 and Foundation Stage 2. These interventions will be further rolled out to these year groups over the academic year as they are completed. I will receive training for this from Dee Shenton (Reading Recovery Teacher leader). In the meantime I am testing the identified children for the interventions in order to get a baseline.
Cale Green Sport Premium Overview The Government now provides funding of £150 million per annum for primary school sport funding. This funding goes directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE. This means that Cale Green will get £8563 for the year 2014-2015. All schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport. Schools have the freedom to choose how they do this. To have maximum impact on the pupils at Cale Green we will use the money to:
Cale Green Sport Premium Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE Paying for professional development opportunities in PE / Sport Running sporting competitions and increasing participation in inter-school competitions – increasing the learning time Increasing participation in School Sport
Cale Green Sport Premium - Impact We evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation We look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE, Physical activity and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. Measuring the impact of the activities provided with sports premium funding can be achieved in different ways. We look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self- esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. Assessments are made both formally and informally using our school assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. We also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE through monitoring improvement in achievement and attainment, lesson observations and verbal feedback from children and staff.
