Information summary about how the resources and funding were utilised (information about the work undertaken by the school).

The funding was used to create a network of lead teachers within 5 local school clusters. Teachers were appointed and met half-termly to review curriculum resources and then organise meetings with schools in their own clusters to share these.

Funding was also used to organise CPD for all schools across each cluster in North Yorkshire, Durham and Darlington on ‘life after levels’ within Maths, English, Science, MFL, Art & Design, Computing. This was provided in response to a survey carried out by schools in each cluster where key curriculum priorities were identified.

Breakdown of Resources by Subject Area

Foundation subjects – ‘5 stage skill’ formats

A progressive skill format has been created for each of the foundation subjects that links to the new national curriculum.

These are used as objectives when planning topics to ensure coverage of focussed skills within specific subject areas.

Across each skill sheet is the breadth of study that links to the national curriculum. Down the side we have created our ‘5 stage’ format that runs from Early’ (i.e. what we would expect a child to be able to achieve upon entry to EYFS) to Extended’ (more able pupils in upper KS2).

This progression supports our teacher sin planning topics at the right level for their children as well as providing support for gifted & talented and less able learners.
