Health and Wellbeing of all pupils
- To instill a love of physical activity with the aim of promoting fitness, wellbeing and mental health of all pupils at Penpol School. To achieve this we need to:
- Regularly assess the fitness of all pupils and use this to create individual goals.
- Ensure that all Phase Groups are provided with a broad range of extracurricular opportunities including the Arts, catering for all ages and abilities throughout the academic year.
- Improve the quality and range of equipment and resources available during breaktimes and in PE lessons.
To ensure the level of teaching and learning enables all pupils to reach age related standards in English and Maths, as set by the 2014 Curriculum. This will be achieved by:
- Ensuring that regular and collaborative planning and rigorous assessment sessions are conducted between Phase Groups.
- Using a systematic approach to the teaching and assessment of spelling.
- Using MAPPIX to promptly assess and identify pupils in need of SWAT intervention (Support With Attainment Targets) and provide immediate and coordinated support.
- Provide daily intensive and differentiated phonic sessions with supporting phonic packs related to the individual ability of each child.
- Organise regular motivational events to encourage pupils and parents/carers to work collaboratively with the school to improve standards in spelling and timestables.
- Supporting and developing parental knowledge and understanding of phonics and mathematics by providing training evenings.
- To ensure creativity is interwoven and fundamental in the teaching of all curriculum areas with the aim of promoting imagination, self-confidence and true a love of learning in all children. This will be achieved by:
- Ensuring that all Subject Coordinators are consistently promoting and monitoring their curriculum areas in terms of resources, subject knowledge, innovation and high-level outcomes.
