Examples of things we do to give our best….Making a difference to speech and language in EYFS
EYFS performance: this is above the national expectation and has been significantly so since 2014. There has been a huge commitment to invest in EYFS from the newly appointed head teacher and from 2013 there has been a focus on developing the outdoor learning environment and securing basic skills. This is now clearly having impact.
EYFS is judged as outstanding
KS1 2015 – All attainment data is significantly above national expectations and is now a sustained improvement for 2 years, where previously the school was coasting. The improvements have embedded and continued, with reading increasing against national again this year. This is due to the focus on phonics applied over 2014-15, the review of reading across the curriculum and a higher focus on reading, with precise reading and guided training for teachers.
