Key Objectives



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.



Raising Standards


  • 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.
    • Providing creative opportunities for all pupils through homework activities centred on ‘Self Motivated Learning’.
    • Having set curriculum workshops and days throughout the year which involve whole school participation and provide enriched and exciting learning experiences.
    • Looking beyond the academic expectations and identifying, promoting and celebrating the creative attributes within each and every pupil.
