What does the school need to do to improve?

(Information for the school and appropriate authority)

• In the foundation subjects, teachers do not always provide work that helps pupils to achieve the ambitious aims of the curriculum. As a result, pupils are not always able to build their knowledge as effectively as they could over time. Leaders should ensure that teachers have the knowledge and skills to provide work for pupils to help them to learn the intended curriculum.

• Some subject leaders are not yet regularly and rigorously monitoring the implementation and impact of their curriculums. This means that leaders are not always aware of the precise strengths and areas for development in the teaching of each subject that pupils study. Leaders should ensure that the monitoring processes that have been applied successfully to reading and the provision for pupils with SEND are utilised across the curriculum.
