At the summer term meeting of the Curriculum and Strategic Development (C&SD) Committee, Governor Hilary Craik took the Committee through a report that had been produced by the County Council’s Education Improvement Adviser when he visited the school last term.  Overall, this showed a very positive picture, with more children than nationally making expected progress in all areas. Attainment in Key Stage 1 (KS1) is good, and a great deal is outstanding, and children leave Key Stage 2 (KS2) with above average attainment. Areas that were highlighted for focus in 2016/2017 were the progress of children with English as an Additional Language (EAL), strategies to improve the attainment of boys in Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and KS1 and the attainment of girls in maths in KS2.

 

The Committee received updates on various link governor visits, including visits on Leadership and Management, Foundation Subjects, “Let’s Write” activities and Pupil Premium funding and attainment. We also discussed updates to the RE Policy and the Complaints Policy and procedure, received an update from Richard Jones on collaboration opportunities within the family of schools and discussed a letter that is being prepared for parents explaining how children’s attainment has progress has been assessed this year.
