  • Appoint learning attitudes lead that will facilitate staff training and introduced programme.
  • Share learning attitudes with class and promote use.
  • Monitor learning attitudes during learning walks, drop ins and lesson observations.
  • Monitor attitudes during playtimes, lunchtimes, and moving around the school.
  • Create a whole school learning attitudes ethos including sharing information/workshops for parents.

Raise attainment and progress in reading and spelling

  • Analyse 2016-2017 data looking at progress of all groups; identify areas for improvement and set aspirational targets for each year group.

Consistent use of formative assessment, which allows all pupils to make at least expected progress

  • Training on questioning, use of must, should could, and marking strategies.
  • New marking and feedback policy drawn up and shared with school community.
