How well are we achieving our aims?

In order to assess how well the schools are meeting the aims of their curricula, a quality assurance framework is in place. 

The key features of this are the following:

  • Moderation and standardisation of our assessment data, both in-school and externally
  • Assessment systems which give national benchmarking data, such as PiRA, PUMA and No More Marking Writing Assessments
  • Regular monitoring of the quality of teaching and learning by the Senior Leadership Team and external advisors, including 'Book Looks', 'Learning Walks' and lesson observations
  • Termly Quality Assurance Visits by the Yare Education Trust
  • Termly updates of progress against the milestones in the Federation Improvement and Development Plan
  • Read, Write Inc. monitoring visits
  • Regular monitoring and analysis of attendance data
  • Pupil surveys
  • Parent surveys
  • Staff wellbeing surveys
  • Pupil mentoring interviews
  • Analysis of termly data 
  • Analysis of behaviour and pastoral information
  • Governors' meetings
  • Meetings of the Parent Council
