|November 2019 OFSTED area for development ||Actions taken by the school to address these|| |
|"In some subjects, such as design and technology and music, the order of learning is not so well planned."|
- Creation of knowledge organisers for DT and music lessons: these allow pupils to remind themselves of skills learnt in previous lessons and years.
- All lessons and sequences of lessons follow a long term plan which ensures the order of learning is sequential and progressive. Subject leaders regularly monitor to check that subjects are demonstrating adequate progression throughout the school year groups.
- A greater degree of emphasis has been put on the whole-school curriculum and staff have had additional training and time to ensure subjects are well planned and delivered.
|"Governors should further develop their understanding of the whole curriculum."||Governors take part in termly visits in which they hold subject leaders to account. || |
