Impact Average progress data and work scrutiny shows children are making good progress in writing in most year groups and better than expected progress in year 6 and F2. Progress in writing is broadly in line with other subjects. Historically, we have had a wide gap between attainment in writing and other subjects. Whilst this is still the case in some year groups, gaps have been significantly even in Y6 which has a high percentage of boys. Boys have made slightly slower
progress than girls in writing in most year groups. Communication, Language and Literacy (CLLD) • Provide children with frequent opportunities to apply phonic strategies through ongoing provision, guided reading and writing Phonics and Support for Spelling observations Spring Term showed effective teaching overall in FS/KS1. Importance of ongoing modelling and application continues to be reinforced. • Provide necessary L & S training for teaching and support staff in new year groups, Y3 and KS2 classes where appropriate KS2 teachers attended training.

Some investment in resources and furniture for reading areas. Impact
There is high quality, consistent and progressive phonics provision in the Foundation Stage, KS1 & lower KS2 Children have structured opportunities to apply phonic knowledge in their reading, writing and across the curriculum. Standards and pupil achievement in reading and writing will be improved to reach targeted pupil outcomes in all year groups. The percentage of children working at age related expectations (ARE) will increase. (2011/12 Y2 cohort) Tracking provides overview of children’s levels of development and progress in L & S to inform planning

them a good understanding of children’s development needs which will inform planning Children will make good progress in differentiated Guided reading groups will be established in all classes Children of all abilities will be motivated to read by quality class based and home reading materials Targetted children in Y1 will make accelerated progress towards ARE through FFT interventions Participating parents have better understanding of how to support children with reading.
Impact Average progress data suggests the introduction of Reading workshops and a focus on guided reading has secured expected or outstanding progress in reading in all year groups. We will explore some pockets of children who appear to be making less than expected progress through pupil progress meetings with classteachers. Monitoring suggests the overall quality of teaching is good, with some variation. Girls have made better progress than boys in reading in some year groups, suggesting there is still more to be done to encourage boys’ reading. Standards in reading are broadly in line with standards in maths and higher than in writing although in some year groups, the gap is narrower than in previous years.

phonic knowledge to reading and spelling
Impact of KS1 Interventions • All Y1 pupils accessing Early Literacy Support (ELS) are making good or expected progress • 100% of Y1 children receiving 1:1 FFT reading support have made good progress • Analysis is not yet complete. Data from progress meetings so far suggests Y2 children participating in the Direct Phonics intervention are making adequate progress. Impact of KS2 Interventions • Most Y3 and Y4 children accessing Additional Literacy Support (ALS or “Quest”) have made expected or accelerated progress in reading and writing, with some class variation. • Most children in the Y3/4 Direct Phonics have made expected or better progress. • Children accessing Fresh Start in Y6 have made expected or accelerated progress. • Children accessing dyslexia support have made expected or accelerated progress • KS2 children receiving 1:1 tuition have made expected or accelerated progress. Average progress by SEN children suggests they are on track to make expected or better progress in reading but some slower progress in writing, although these have yet to be fully evaluated.

Classteachers analyse pupil progress termly to quickly identify pupils who are falling behind and inform provision Teachers have good understanding of the target setting process and their accountability for pupil progress. Subject leaders and SENCO make effective use of pupil data for evaluation and action planning Effective system for maintaining APP records is identified. Staff use a range of day to day assessment strategies which are identified in and inform future ST planning Differentiated teaching is informed by ongoing assessment. Accurate and consistent teacher assessment in reading and maths is confirmed through moderation. Teachers are confident using APP to assess in reading and maths and science Teachers make diagnostic reading assessments which inform provision and targets Impact of interventions on pupil progress can be evaluated. Assessment timetable is in place Progress in PSHE/MFL is monitored. Teachers/subject leaders evaluate progression/ARE in Foundation subjects using Skills Ladders Assessment records are effectively managed
All planning includes clear learning objectives (LOs) and success criteria which are effectively shared with and understood by pupils. Modelling, plenaries and opportunities to review their own and other’s work in all classes ensure pupils can evaluate successes and areas for

improvement and apply marking policy. Children receive clear oral and written feedback based on LOs and success criteria. Children are able to identify their own targets/next steps. All teachers provide children with opportunities to review their own and others work and time to act on feedback to improve their work. Parents understand policy Teachers ask worthwhile questions which support ongoing assessment and extend and deepen children’s thinking Children and adults have confidence in their ability/potential and are motivated to learn and embrace challenges. Pupils have high levels of engagement through involvement in planning and reviews of how learning is progressing Teachers share and develop best practice through collaborative working. Best practice is spread to all classes. Teachers support one another to introduce and develop new teaching strategies.
