My Personal Best

Child with Milestone CertificateMy Personal Best
We have high expectations of everyone, regardless of their background or ability.  Children are encouraged to achieve their ‘Personal Best’ and are given clear ‘next steps’ guidance.

The school has developed a set of clear targets, which we call ‘Milestones’, for the core skills in key subjects.  Milestones for Maths include a focus on number bonds and times tables, while Milestones for Literacy include handwriting and spelling. From Year Three onwards children learn to provide evidence to demonstrate they have developed key skills in order to achieve a Creative or Technical Writing Milestone.

The Milestones also help to motivate the children and reward their effort, as they receive a certificate for each one they achieve. The children certainly like them!

‘One parent’s comment was typical of the views of others: “My child gets lots of individual attention and help, tailored to his particular needs.” ‘

Child with Milestone CertificateTracking Progress
We use a variety of systems to ensure that children maintain their progress. These include ‘Writing Progress’ books, Pupil Profiles and computer-based tracking. Teachers work closely with each other at key transition points such as moving to the next class to ensure that children continue their good progress.

‘Teachers have a detailed and accurate understanding of pupils’ attainment and plan lessons with appropriate challenge … A robust tracking system identifies those pupils not making good enough progress and allows timely interventions to improve their learning.’
