Target 4 Progress

Our curriculum design is filled with Learning Projects that are rich and engaging.  Contained throughout projects across the school, are topic matter that address a plethora of emotional and mental wellbeing issues, allowing opportunities for the school to explore Cross-Cutting Themes.


LPS uses Thrive to identify children who may need intervention to support wellbeing. Class Teachers and Teaching Assistants use action plans and strategies that have been populated using thrive at class level.  There is strong communication and collaboration between Class Teachers, Teaching Assistants and ALNCo in order to provide and deliver strategies for support in class and withdrawal sessions.  Where required, this support is enhanced through the use of external agencies for further strategies or specialised support. 


We have recently enhanced the role of pastoral support, working closely with ALNCo and the Triple H PVG.  Mrs Bevan will work across the school to deliver specialised support for all learners in collaboration with relevant team members. 


LPS has reviewed and amended all relevant policies with regard to new ALN Legislation and have shared these to support neighbouring schools.  The LA, Region and Welsh Government requested use of our Policies, documentation and procedures to share good practice during their training sessions in order to support schools on their journey for readiness to meet the needs of all learners, under the new ALN legislation.


There is a strong partnership between SLT, ALNCo and Admin staff with clear systems of communication which allow for wellbeing or attendance issues to be supported promptly. 


The ALNCo maintains regular contact with parents to offer advice, support, training and virtual workshops. Where necessary, she facilitates support between external agencies and families.


Our Health and Wellbeing Leader discussed with both learners and parents the impact of the work our Emotional Health & Wellbeing Practitioner has had on our school and the community. All learners who have worked with the Practitioner have felt more confident when articulating their emotions and using their own strategies on how to deal with challenging situations. These carefully planned and nurturing sessions are designed to provide learners with strategies to face and overcome challenge, as well as giving learners the chance to explore their different emotions, improving their emotional health and wellbeing. Feedback from parents who attended the parent workshop was also very positive. Attending the workshops has given our parents in the community a deeper understanding of how to support children and young people to develop their resilience, confidence and empathy.


The Happy Healthy Helpers and AoLE Leader discussed with learners the input of Good Thymes Gardening. Good Thymes Gardening has provided a number of learners with wellbeing sessions through gardening. Through conversations with learners, we found that all learners enjoyed being part of the sessions and being out in the fresh air. Year 2 children particularly enjoyed using all of their senses during the sessions and planting seeds to take home and look after. This has given our learners a sense of responsibility from caring for the plants, and a real sense of achievement.

The Happy Healthy Helpers enjoyed being part of the planning for Children’s Mental Health Week. All activities were a success and allowed learners to explore their emotions, share their feelings and thoughts, and ideas on how we can support one another.  

Within Physical Education, there has been continued success with local community links as our partnership with Swansea A.F.C and Mr Humphries have provided pupils with rich learning experiences. KS2 pupils have had the opportunity to attend swimming sessions which has provided the pupils with experience of an invaluable life skill.   Nearly all pupils have engaged well in and enjoyed their physical education sessions and demonstrated a good understanding of how to be successful in their learning.


Additionally, the AoLE Leader has developed a continuum of PE skills for each year group to ensure clear progression of skills and to incorporate Curriculum for Wales requirements.


Our next steps are

  • The Happy Healthy Helpers and the AoLE Leader will continue to review the new LPS Curriculum Projects to ensure progression and coverage of the Health and Wellbeing Statements of what matter. To ensure that there are opportunities for self- determined learning and to ensure that the Rights of the Child are incorporated across both phases. 
  • To reintroduce our Pupil Drop in, Turn Your Frown Upside Down, ceased due to COVID-19 restrictions.
  • Set up steering committee for Emotional and Mental Wellbeing across the school using national framework, in order to improve provision for all learners, staff and our wider community.

  • To continue to work collaboratively with the Eco Warriors towards the Silver Rights Respecting School Award.
  • To implement the new continuum of PE skills for each year group which will ensure clear progression of skills and incorporates Curriculum for Wales requirements.
  • The Fitness Fanatics and AoLE Leader to continue to work together to review new projects throughout the school to ensure progression and coverage of the Health and Wellbeing What Matters Statements.
