Achievement

Attendance is high 98.1%

Prior attainment at KS1 for KS2 cohorts in previous Year 6 and 5 is Sig+

Phonics screen check demonstrates 97% of children met required standard with 100% of Year 2 retaking the check meeting the required standard

Attainment at KS1 is significantly higher than national, particularly at 2a+ and L3+ (All subjects APS for 2014 is 17.3)

DSEN children at KS1 achieve well compared to national comparisons in all areas

% of children achieving L4+ is high compared to national in Reading (97%), Writing (97%) and Mathematics (97%)

% of children attaining L5+ is significantly higher compared to national in Reading (70%), Writing (58%)

DSEN and Non DSEN children achieve very well compared to national comparators.

No sign gender gap in any subject in KS1

Attainment at KS2 is sig+ for all subjects Reading (30.9) Writing (30.3)

Value added APS scores are high Reading (13.3), Writing (14.01)

Children achieving expected progress are high.

Children achieving more than expected progress on DfE measure compare favourably. However, sublevel more than expected (i.e. 14pts or more progress) demonstrate
64% of children in writing and 36% in Reading.

High proportions of 2b/2a children in writing and reading progressed to L5

GAPS APS is high compared to national and has significantly improved on 2013 results.
Quality of Teaching
Teaching is outstanding. This is based on the triangulation of lesson observations, rigorous and externally validated book scrutiny and progress data. The teaching was judged to
never be less than good in all lesson observations undertaken between 2012-2014. School evaluation of areas of development in that time, concerned the use of SPAG teaching
models, sentence level work and modeling of texts during guided writing.
Leadership and Management
The subject leader provides outstanding leadership by supporting members of staff with their own English teaching. Her knowledge of the role of English subject is excellent as
well as her detailed analysis of school and government data. She has an outstanding understanding of how well the school is performing against national data and has a clear
action plan to further drive forward improvement in outcomes. Supported by the Principal the impact of her work has revolved around:

Ensuring consistency within marking procedures

Ensuring analysis of data leads to robust plans to address areas of development

Monitoring for standards- lesson observations, book scrutiny and learning walks

Leading PDMs

Using pupil discussions to analyse impact of whole school policy and procedures

Success criteria:
Attainment

Attainment in reading and writing to continue to be significantly above national expectation of 29.0
and 27.9 by the end of key stage 2 in 2015

Increase the percentage of children attaining level 6 in reading and writing

Increase the percentage of level 3 writers to above 23% (previous 2014 %)

Attainment in Writing is high across the school compared to national data.

PPG children attainment compares favourably to those children in their respective cohort and is higher
than national data in both Reading and Writing

Almost all pupils with prior attainment at L2a attain L5 in 2015 in writing and reading

The majority of pupils with prior attainment L2b attain L5 in 2015 in writing and reading
Progress

RAISEonline 2015 end of Key Stage 2 data evidences that the proportion of pupils making more than
expected progress (3 national curriculum levels) across Key Stage 2 is high compared with national
data

Increased rates of progress ensures that at least 30% of pupils are making more than expected
progress across Key Stage 2

RAISEonline 2014 end of Key Stage 2 data evidences that the proportion of pupils making expected
progress (2 national curriculum levels) across Key Stage 2 is never less than 90%

Analysis of school held data indicates that all pupils make at least good progress, or better in reading
and writing
Quality of Teaching

Lesson observation demonstrate all teaching is never less than good and majority is outstanding

Use of Alan Peat sentence level structure evidenced through planning and book monitoring

SpAG displays reflects Alan Peat sentence level structures

Teachers plan and teach writing throughout the curriculum

Teachers plan opportunities for independent writing a minimum of 8 times year

Teachers planning reflects a structured progression from reading through to independent writing for
each unit of work demonstrated by clear evidence of learning in English and/or topic books

Teachers and childrens handwriting across the school reflects the highest standards and school
policy.

High quality marking and constructive feedback focused upon how pupils can improve their work is
ensuring pupils make at least good progress by reading and responding consistently adhering to the
marking policy.

Teachers will compile 8 pieces of independent work for a selection of children across the year in order
to gain an accurate and reliable levelled judgement.

The appraisal process is holding teachers to account for increasing the rates of progress in English

Schools current position (January 2015)
The objective of this plan is to continue to improve the APS in mathematics by delivering on 4 main objectives. One, develop AT1 further throughout the school. Two, to enhance
the learning in mathematics by providing mathematical models and images in each classroom. Three, to develop the use of numicon to support the understanding of number.
Four, To continue to provide training to all staff with regard to the new national curriculum so that planning is rigorous and structured.
Achievement

Attendance is high 98.1%

Prior attainment at KS1 for KS2 cohorts in previous Year 6 and 5 is Sig+

Attainment at KS1 is significantly higher than national, particularly at 2a+ and L3+ (All subjects APS for 2014 is 17.3)

DSEN children at KS1 achieve well compared to national comparisons in all areas

% of children achieving L4+ is high compared to national in Mathematics (97%)

% of children attaining L5+ is significantly higher compared to national in Mathematics (55%)

DSEN and Non DSEN children achieve very well compared to national comparators.

No sign gender gap in mathematics

Attainment at KS2 is sig+ for Mathematics (31.1)

Value added APS scores are high in Mathematics (13.8)

Children achieving expected progress are high.

High proportion of level3 children progressed to Level 6 in mathematics


Quality of Teaching
Teaching is outstanding. This is based on the triangulation of lesson observations, rigorous and externally validated book scrutiny and progress data. The teaching was judged to
never be less than good in all lesson observations undertaken between 2012-2014, with the exception of one. School evaluation of areas of development in that time, concerned
the use of mathematical models and images to further provide children with an understanding of number concepts.
Leadership and Management
The subject leader provides good leadership by supporting members of staff with their own mathematics teaching. Her knowledge of the role of mathematics subject is excellent
as well as her detailed analysis of school and government data. She has an outstanding understanding of how well the school is performing against national data and has a clear
action plan to further drive forward improvement in outcomes. Supported by the Principal the impact of her work has revolved around:

Ensuring consistency within marking procedures

Ensuring analysis of data leads to robust plans to address areas of development

Monitoring for standards- lesson observations, book scrutiny and learning walks

Leading PDMs

Using pupil discussions to analyse impact of whole school policy and procedures

Schools current position (January 2015)
Quality of Teaching
Evidence in topic books demonstrates that learning over time is never less than good in all year groups. In the majority of classes it is outstanding. Currently, linked to the
sections of the learning wheel, evidence in books suggests that higher order thinking skills are not being planned and taught consistently throughout the school. This resulted in
the instigation and implementation of whole school learning wheels. The predicted impact will see teachers plan and teach activities which relate to hypothesizing, comparing and
evaluating. Half termly book scrutiny demonstrates never less than good feedback in relation to marking. The presentation of work has improved dramatically in the last year as
evidenced by the use of water colour, organization and setting out as well as the quality of handwriting. Teachers expectations as a result of the above have risen which has
impacted on the quality of learning and childrens attitudes to work.
Achievement
Based on in school tracking data, the majority of pupils exceed age related expectations in all foundation subjects as well as science.
Leadership and Management
The schools ethos and principles with regard to our evolving curriculum relate solely to providing tangible experiences to drive learning. This single tenant has driven the work
the school has undertaken from redrafting our whole year overviews to creation of our bespoke learning wheel. We believe children should do rather than research on the
internet or complete undifferentiated worksheets.
We have provided staff INSET training, staff meetings, reflection time and external courses to enable them to plan, teach and assess our curriculum based on experiential and
tangible learning. Staff have been led through an enormous period of change which has included:

Changes in planning

New Curriculum coverage and topics

Use of a tangible experience to drive learning and engagement

Creation of the learning wheel to structure the cycle of learning

Increase teachers subject knowledge and skillset

Non-negotiable expectations have been created for handwriting, presentation codes, WALT/WILF grids etc.

2014 cohort has been judged to be good. School leaders have therefore judged EYFS to be good overall as a consequence. The main limiting factors to the Good Level of
Development were reading and writing where 8 children across those two areas did not reach the target of the Early Learning Goal (ELG). The prime areas of learning continue to
be a strength of the school with 90%+ children reaching the ELG in those areas. Likewise in specific areas which are not Literacy or Mathematics childrens progress and
attainment are outstanding. Transition matrixes for Reception indicate that in Literacy and Mathematics 80%+ children made expected progress with 17% of children making
more than expected in mathematics, 20% in reading and 10% in writing.
Quality of Teaching
A new Reception teacher has started at Boughton Heath Academy (January 2015). The previous overall quality of teaching was judged as good as a consequence of the 2014
achievement.
Leadership and Management
School leaders currently judge EYFS to be good, as a result of standards which have fallen from 2013. Coupled with issues such as the outdoor learning space and internal
environment needing renovation, the organization of education programmes in reception, such as writing across the curriculum, need evaluating to ensure that they are never
less than outstanding. Use of assessment systems in school need further evaluation to ensure that children are tracked by Foundation Stage leaders more rigorously. This should
be linked to coverage of development matters bands and foundation stage profiles. Senior leaders within the school have been quick to identify potential areas of development
within EYFS and although achievement is good (2014) the schools pursuit of excellence is such that leaders feel that grading is not acceptable.

Schools Current Position:


Boughton Heath Primary School, Mill View Primary School and Kelsall School will be forming a multi academy trust named Cheshire Academies Trust. This joint venture will
see BH and MV convert to academy joining Kelsall on 1st January 2015.
Each school will be recognised as an individual and their own core values and ethos will remain. However all 3 schools understand the benefits of shared and collaborative
working practices to improve effectiveness in each school. On that basis, two main priorities have been established as CAT is formed. One; refers to how the MAT schools will
be linking their staff to benefit CPD and working practices and two; developing an assessment system which is not linked to National Curriculum levels.
Success criteria:

Leadership and Management


To develop and implement MAT wide protocols for communication, collaboration and shared working practices to improve staff practice and
outcomes for children.
Success Criteria (note strategic levels include HT/DHT/SLT/SENCO/EYFS/ Ma/Eng)

Creation of a document outlining shared practice and communication protocols

Creation of timetables and schedules for MAT personnel to link together

Shared policies and procedures at CAT level agreed and implemented

At each strategic level, staff to write an evaluation demonstrating impact on practice and outcomes for children.

At all strategic levels identified staff will meet at least once per term working on agreed agendas/outcomes

School Councils in CAT schools to meet termly

To implement a joint INSET creating 11 by 11 document.

To provide stakeholders with a link to CAT vision and documentation on individual websites.
Quality of Teaching
To devise and implement an effective assessment system to use pupil assessment information and data to improve learning in the classroom and
at key points of transition between key stages (EY to Year 1; Year 2 to Year 3) in each school
Success Criteria

A review of school assessment practices and changes to the curriculum by senior leaders have informed a new whole school system for
assessment across CAT

The assessment system is linked to the schools curriculum and sets out what pupils are expected to know, understand and do, and by
when

The assessment system uses formative and summative assessment to ensure that pupils, teachers and parents know if pupils are
achieving the expected standard

Teachers make consistent judgments and adopt the best practices of working together to moderate assessments for year groups and
end of keys stages

Assessment practices are accurate through both internal and external standardisation and moderation

Any assessment is used to modify teaching so that the vast majority of pupils achieve at least expected standards by the end of the year
or key stage
