Context and barriers:

Our school of @300 pupils has a diverse population with @73% (56%Service Pupils @12% FSM) in a semi-rural context of historical low aspirations. At Bovington, we avoid labelling our pupils but take time to get to know them really well to understand their backgrounds and their individual needs. We recognise that for some pupils it is the intersectionality of several complex factors that generates barriers or challenges for them in thriving at our school. Many of our children face the common barriers for PP children of less support at home, weak language and communication skills, and lack of confidence, more frequent behaviour difficulties, and attendance and punctuality issues. There may also be complex family situations that prevent children from flourishing. The challenges are varied and there is no “one size fits all”. To this end we have adapted our provision to one of universality to ensure that all pupils that come to Bovington Primary School thrive, make exceptional progress and learn to set and exceed the challenges and high expectations that they nurture for themselves. We work to ensure that our pupils become confident, independent and well-rounded and active citizens.

Plans for ‘17-‘18

In line with our policy of universality to all pupils we intend to continue to invest comprehensive training for all relevant staff in the Read Write Inc. phonics programme. We intend to further raise standards and expectations in writing through further training and further partner work with other T4W schools and we will continue to fully utilise the Maths No Problem textbooks and workbooks.

We plan to use the assessment policy as a vehicle to further raise expectations for all pupils.

The deployment of TA and support staff across the school will be reviewed to prioritise same day intervention with those children that require extra support to keep up with their peers. Interventions will be limited to support reading, inc. BR@P, and maths.

Alongside this we will continue to seek external organisations and identified local opportunities to enrich and enhance the opportunities for cultural capital for all pupils. This will include further extension of breakfast and after school provision, opportunities for trips and visits and access to theatre and musical experiences. FSM children will be given preference to access these opportunities within the context of universal access.

There remain other significant variations such as between girls and boys and there is a need to further address these areas as well as challenging and extending high attaining pupils. Securing these expectations and strong pupil progress for all pupils, particularly those that are high achieving, will be a priority for next year.
