During our Spring Term LPS Review Week, the PVG and AoLE Leader undertook Workbook Scrutiny, Listening to Learners and Lesson Observations.
We identified the following strengths related to our Action Plan:
- In all classes, challenge boards and topic webs are being used to enrich learner’s independence and to give them a voice in the planning and learning. Most learners could talk about the process of pupil voice and how their ideas shared are used in the planning of challenges and missions. These strategies are contributing to child- initiated learning across the school and empowering pupils to have ownership over their learning and outcomes.
- Nearly all classes have made links to health and wellbeing using cross curricular themes. All children had a good knowledge of the importance of keeping fit and healthy.
- The use of the pupil drop in ‘Turn your frown upside down’ has grown and those who attended could talk about how it supports the understanding of emotions and social situations.
Our next steps are:
- To continue to support the Happy Healthy Helpers to run ‘Turn your frown upside down’ and support them in the activities.
- To develop the coverage of wellbeing in lessons across the school.
- To support the Happy Healthy Helpers to offer emotion coach training to the other PVGs.
As a result of undertaking ‘Listening to Learners’ activities, carried out by Mr Parker and representatives from the pupil voice group, pupils from various classes provided the following feedback.
- All pupils provided positive feedback when asked if they enjoyed Physical Education.
