Autumn Term Review:
Health and Well-Being Leaders have been appointed and created an action plan for developing Health and Well-Being across the school.
Area Leaders have worked within a cluster Health and Well-Being PLC to research and prepare for the What Matters Statements in readiness for the new curriculum. New leaders have provided an effective plan to move the school forward in this area of learning.
Health & Wellbeing PVG set up to develop this area across the school and focus on specific targets for improvement such as Emotion Coaching to support pupil wellbeing (See Turn your Frown Upside Down Gallery).
The PVG groups regularly meet and work alongside Area Leaders to co-construct curriculum developments.
The PVG has gained leadership skills in their area, forming opinions of where their area needs to develop as a result of their monitoring activities. PVGs working collaboratively in order to build a cross curricular approach to raising standards in their areas of learning.
The PLJ has been introduced to all classes. Weekly assemblies introduce foci of the week. Focus discussed at all opportunities and are linked with end of the week rewards assembly. (See PLJ Area).
The PLJ has enabled the whole school community to focus on developing the four core purposes. Weekly review sessions allow for more in-depth discussion and self-reflection in order to develop further understanding. (See Year 6 Super Evaluations) (See Year 5 PLJ Vloggs).
The PLC group has established strong network links for the newly developed leaders as a school and a cluster. Knowledge gleaned from the PLC sessions has fed into action plan developments, therefore providing greater focus to key developments.

Summer Term Review:
All Support Staff have received extensive training regarding specific learning difficulties, during INSET, which have improved awareness, knowledge and support for ALN pupils.
Newly appointed ALNCo has received copious training regarding ALN Bill and new legislation in order to improve leadership and application of her role within the school.
As a result, the ALNCo is able to disseminate up-to-date and relevant information at all levels.
ALNCo training has developed effective links with other schools to improve support for severe and complex needs and Health & Wellbeing.
Nearly all classes have made links to health and wellbeing through their Cornerstone topic using cross curricular themes and through activities during Wellbeing Week.
Most children could talk confidently about the Pupil Learning Journal and how they use it in class. All classes had evidence of PLJ in their literacy books or on their website. There is evidence of incorporating PLJ into other areas of learning, such as using observation skills to interpret a piece of art work.
All FP classes participate in outdoor learning. All children could talk enthusiastically about their Messy Monday, Welly Wednesday and Funday Friday. Learning outdoors supports the development of healthy and active lifestyles, sense of well-being and gives them rich activities to nurture creativity.
