Learning and Teaching

The Learning and Teaching Sub-committee monitors the progress of all pupils and the quality of the teaching across the school.

We do this by reviewing the policies and practices implemented by the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team (SLT). We look at the pupil tracking data to ensure that all our children are achieving the right levels of progress and monitor the interventions put in place to help those needing extra support to fulfil their potential.

An example of the recent work of this sub-committee has been the school’s target to improve standards of writing across all year groups, and for boys in particular. This sub-committee has monitored this process closely, discussing levels of progress with the Headteacher and reviewing strategies. We have visited lessons to learn about the methods adopted and developed by teachers and have followed the progress of this initiative by assessing the tracking data for different groups of children. We have provided support to the Headteacher and congratulated him and his staff on successfully raising the standards of writing across the school. This will continue to be an area of development for this sub-committee.
