Standards in writing continue to rise, particularly in infants. As the Talk for Writing approach becomes embedded and the children continue to acquire an internal library of vocabulary, sentence structure/ phrasing and the conventions for a range of genre, we expect standards to continue to improve. We have noticed a  positive effect on children's self-belief and confidence. 

The quality of learning in maths has improved, especially for less confident mathematicians. Our new calculation policy and emphasis on using physical apparatus to bridge the gap from concrete to abstract maths is paying dividends.

Learning behaviours have improved. Children are better able to articulate what positive behaviours are and are excited by earning 'gems'. A focus on developing a culture of 'growth mindset' in the school will develop this further.
