Improve the quality of teaching to good or better through: Teaching Assistants Impact Effective use of Teaching Assistants We know this because: Drop ins – Mrs Thorne, Mrs Brooker and HMI Lesson Observations – Literacy Subject Leaders. Since 28.2.13 Effective use of Teaching Assistants has continued. Teaching Assistants are now clear about their role as well as the expectations of leading a Guided Reading session with a group of children.
Improve the quality of teaching to good or better through: Levelling Work Teachers working in pairs to ensure the levels are accurate in reading, writing and numeracy. Pupil Progress Meeting with every class teacher. Drop ins and lesson observations to identify the challenge within lessons. Since 28.2.13 All the above has continued. External Moderation has taken place with KS1 and before the end of the month with KS2.

Drop in focussing on work matched to the pupils’ differing abilities – Since 28.2.13, work is matched more closely in 5/7 classes and we are supporting the other staff.
Improve the quality of teaching to good or better through: Marking Reviewed the marking policy Agreed marking codes in every classroom Book scrutiny Non-negotiable list for Literacy and Numeracy books.

Review and support any barriers to the learning with groups of pupils. Creating a report for the Education Committee so the staff are being held to account by Governors. Since 28.2.13 Book and planning are being scrutinised on a monthly basis and this is reported back to the Senior Management Team.
Improve the quality of Leadership and Management through: Impact with Subject Leaders As a result of conducting Pupil Progress Meetings with the SLT, the leaders have a deeper understanding of progress across the school. The effectiveness of the Subject Leaders to improve the standards of learning have now increased as they are able to act upon areas discussed in the meetings. Since 28.2.13 Subject Leaders are taking on more responsibility in monitoring and supporting staff to ensure consistency across the School.
Improve the quality of Leadership and Management through: Ensuring that the Governors use the information they receive from the school to check that teaching and pupils’ achievement are improving Report for Education Committee Increased challenge to the Head/Deputy through questioning Designated action plan meetings therefore the number of meetings have increased.
