Targeted support Ensuring enough time for agreed interventions to be  followed, and these are time limited and evaluated Named staff will be allocated separate responsibilities to deliver interventions as well as class-based teachers/support staff.
Wider strategies Supporting children’s behaviour for learning and engaging the families facing most challenges A whole school language will be introduced in order to equip all staff to support behaviour regulation.

Working closely with LA and other schools to provide support for families

Review: last year’s aims and outcomes

Aim Outcome
Raising attainments in writing Due to COVID there is no validated data available

Developing writing was the most difficult curriculum area to support remotely and remains a priority for 2021-22

Providing pastoral support for pupils and families ensuring high attendance Support from the Pastoral Worker and Learning mentor ensured that engagement and attendance was strong for most disadvantaged pupils. However, attendance data is not available due to COVID.

Multi-agency work and investment in CPD for the pastoral team ensured high levels of support for pupils and families.  Evidenced in pupils more emotionally stable and ready to learn and families engaging more with school.

Development of staff to deliver high quality, personalised intervention programmes Investment in staff CPD in phonics, talk Boost and Lancashire Reading Partnership led to improvements in high quality interventions across school. Embedding these will remain a focus for 2021-22.
