At Rokesly Every Child Matters in Every Way
Your child deserves the best.
To get the best outcomes we must have the best systems and the best standards – measurable and accountable – to emonstrate excellence. We have ambitious expectations for all.
Here are our School Improvement Priorities for 2018-19:
School Priority 1
Further improve Maths teaching and learning to ensure children have opportunities to develop reasoning skills and achieve GDS
- Nurture strong partnerships that allow staff to access resources, training and support to further develop outstanding practice in Maths (Maths HUB, HEP and NLC)
- Have a Maths curriculum that gives opportunities for pupils to develop reasoning skills
- Successfully prepare KS1 pupils for the KS2 Maths curriculum at all levels of attainment, especially the most able and those working at GDS
- Give pupils opportunities to explore skills through investigative and practical maths
- Collect evidence of pupils working at GDS available for moderation and assessment
- Make sure pupils continue to exceed National and Local expectations at KS1Pupils continue to exceed National and Local Good Level of Development in EYFS
- Ensure all pupils continue to make at least good progress from their starting points
School Priority 2
Improve outcomes for all identified vulnerable pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and with a focus on our Black and Minority Ethnic pupils
- Measurable improvements in a range of outcomes for children we identify as being ‘vulnerable ‘ to underachievement
- Keep a regular check on progress and achievement for our identified groups of children
- Hold half-termly meetings to review progress and plan any further action for Vulnerable pupils that identify and tackle gaps and continue to have ambitious expectations for all
- Ensure interventions and pupil support is effective
- Ensure more vulnerable pupils have access to opportunities and experiences that enable them to develop skills outside of the classroom
- Engage effectively with parents to improve outcomes for their children
- Governors have overview of BME and Disadvantaged pupils and review actions termly
A Sutton Trust survey has found that disadvantaged pupils are “significantly less likely” to take up extracurricular activities than those from wealthier backgrounds.
School Priority 3
Further enhance the curriculum to improve outdoor learning and play opportunities for all pupils
- Maximise opportunities for out of class learning across the school, increasing opportunities for physical activity and learning through play
- Ensure staff are confident in using our outdoor environments for teaching and learning (CPD, Forest School)
- Make sure all children access our outdoor environment regularly and routinely as part of an outstanding curriculum so they are able to build skills and knowledge across all curriculum areas.
- Ensure our outdoor areas are effectively resourced to maximise use (Grants and fundraising,. Support from our Link schools)
- Make sure children develop essential skills for learning and life, supporting ‘readiness’ for next stages in education
- Pupils learn independently with increased motivation, raised standards and accelerated progress
